Phase of play

Phase of play

Phase of play begins with one of two servers serving the ball into the attacking team.

From here the defending (red) team defend as a unit, based on where the ball is.

Upon Transition, the red team can attack in a wide shape and attempt to play back into the blue servers

Coaching points

- Compact back 4? Compact Midfield unit?

- Excellent technique and communication desired.

- Midfielders either press or screen based on situations - Quality of pass/body shape of reciever/ moment of game/tactical decisions

- Back 4 move as a unit based on where the ball is/moves. Ball backward - Back 4 move up, side ways - move slightly up - Forwards - drop...

Progression

- Once Reds play into server, the server can then become live and act as an over load vs the reds.

- Time limit on the blues to score. Increases the intensity of the play and involves quicker decisions to defend.
