Football players adapt their movements to opportunities within the surrounding environment by engaging in visual exploratory activity (VEA) to pick-up information. This study adds to the extant literature by using a six-week PETTLEP imagery intervention to train VEA and improve performance with the ball. A single-case, multiple-baseline across participants’ design was conducted with five elite academy football players. Results indicated that a PETTLEP imagery intervention improved VEA, particularly in center midfielders. Additionally, indications of improvements in performance with the ball were present within some participants. Future researchers could examine the processes underpinning VEA to enhance applied interventions for this skill.
