2 STYLES OF PLAY: SPECIFIC MATCH OFFENSIVE STYLE All teams will be encouraged to display an offensive style of play based on keeping possession and quick movement of the ball. QUICK TRANSITIONS AND FINISHING Speed of play, avoiding over-dribbling, looking for an organized and quick movement of the ball and finishing will be encouraged in all age groups. POSITION SPECIFIC A team must be organized defensively, keeping their specific positions in the formation. However, players will look for space and movement to support the forward when attacking by moving away from their original positions. FORMATIONS FORMATION Teams will use the formation, either in its or variations. Teams in the advanced stage (U15 onwards) can also use a formation with a diamond in the middle. This system (4-4-2 diamond) provides more space in the wide areas of the field for the outside backs to move forward and join the attack. BACK 4 All formations used by the teams in 11-a-side games must keep a back 4 line. The back 4 provides consist- ency in defense and allows space for the outside backs to move forward when attacking. 9v9 Teams playing 9v9 soccer are strongly encouraged to use the formation. This formation helps play- ers express the principles of play specified in this document. This system allows for better adaptation to a formation as the players progress to 11v11. This is the formation in its variation. This is a well balanced formation in attack and defense with two holding midfield players and one attacking midfielder. 1 P a g e

3 STYLES OF PLAY: SPECIFIC TECHNICAL PASSING & RECEIVING: Passing the ball on the ground with pace from different distances and receiving the ball while keeping it moving will be encouraged in all age groups. SHOOTING Players must develop the ability to shoot from different distances. All players Should be encouraged to shoot around the goal keeper box. BALL CONTROL AND TURNING Players will be encouraged to keep close control of the ball and use different turning techniques to move away from the defender. TACTICAL PLAYING OUT FROM THE BACK All teams must feel comfortable playing the ball from the back through the midfield and from there to the final quarter of the field. POSSESSION & TRANSITION All teams must try to keep possession of the ball playing a one-two touch game. Players will be encouraged to support and move, thus creating passing options. Once the possession game is consolidated the team must learn how to transfer the ball in the most efficient way from one area of the field to another. PHYSICAL SPEED & AGILITY These qualities will be evident in the game from the early ages. ENDURANCE Individual players and teams will train to be resilient to high-intensity action. STRENGTH & POWER Strong players develop their speed more quickly, prevent injuries and are more competitive in games. 2 P a g e

6 STRUCTURE OF A TRAINING SESSION SPACE TIME INTENSITY RULES NUMBER OF PLAYERS Keep the organization of the space simple. The initial set up, with small changes, should be maintained throughout the whole session. Resetting cones during a session can easily disturb the flow of training. Attention during the session should be Focused on making the coaching points. Time is flexible. Let the practice flow and make the coaching points at the right time, using breaks to give feedback to the group. Use short periods of time at high-intensity and utilize resting periods to explain the practices or make coaching points. Use different rules to adapt the practices to the characteristics of the players and make the exercises age-appropriate. Practice should progress from smaller to bigger groups of players. Use support players to create superiority in numbers and to make the exercises easier for the attackers. 5 P a g e

23 CONCLUSION The following booklet guide has been provided as a base for the coach to then go and implement. It must not be underestimated the role the coach will now play for each of players he or she works with. The most important person involved in a player s soccer life is the coach and I would hope that you follow this guide in structuring your sessions and in developing the key areas for the young players you will work with. I hope that you use the information provided and your own knowledge to help make this a positive experience for all the players and for yourself. 22 P a g e
