* #3 AND #4 FACE FORWARD WHEN RECEIVING, PLAYING FORWARD WITH QUICK BALL SPEED.

* #6 AND #8 MUST BE ABLE TO BE SEEN BY CREATING ANGLES AND POSITIONING THEMSELVES TO CREATE SPACE.

* CAN #6 AND # 8 DROP IN TO RECEIVE BALL FROM GOALKEEPER, #3 OR #4 TO ALLOW THEMSELVES TIME TO FACE FORWARD BY OPENING UP THEIR BODIES.

* CAN #6 AND #8 PLAY A BOUNCE BALL SO WE CAN PASS TO A PLAYER HIGHER ON THE FIELD AND RETURN A BOUNCE BALL FROM THEM, MEANING WE ARE NOW FACING FORWARD.

* #10 MUST POSITION HIMSELF BEHIND OPPOSITION #6 AND #8 OR ROTATE SO ONE OF THE THREE MIDFIELDERS IS HIGHER THAN THE OTHER TWO.

* WHEN IT GETS CONGESTED ON ONE SIDE OR AREA THE PLAYER IN THE VICINITY OF THE BALL MUST LOOK TO QUICKLY CHANGE THE POINT OF ATTACK (MAKE THE FIELD BIG) AND OUR #6 AND #8 MUST SHIFT ACCORDINGLY.
