Coaching Points

2 and 5 should be high and wide when we have possession

2 and 5 should have the freedom to get up into the attack

10 should find space b/t lines and offer the depth. Also needs to make good decisions on the ball

6 and 8 should be pivot players, looking to change the point of attack when possible.

3 and 4 drop out and provide depth and support when the ball stalls

6 and 8 need to be in support of the ball and create space for each other

Be quick in transition to defend spaces and get compact right away in relation to the ball.

Connect the lines and whole team gets forward when ball is forward.

Read visual and verbal cues from teammates to anticipate movements.
