2 THE IMPORTANCE OF USING SPACE A fundamental feature of good tactical team play is being able to optimise your space when attacking, and being able to close down your opponents’ space when defending. It requires;good spatial awarenessgood role and team awareness.Players know how effectively they perform in their role
3 THE IMPORTANCE OF USING SPACE The objective of the selected structure/strategy is to use and create space and options in bringing the ball to the goal area.Players must have an awareness of spaces and when, where & how to move.Players must co-operate within the structure/strategy by ensuring that their opponents are not allowed to interfere with the planned strategySupport play & skill combined to make correct option
4 Advantages of appropriately selecting structures/strategies to meet performance demands All players are clear about their responsibilitySpeed – provides a fast route to the goalCreates depth and penetration in attackEnsures options since space and players are readily available to support alongsideand behind the ball.
5 Principles of PlayAll invasion games are played according to basic principles. They are applicable to both the attack and defence phases of play.
6 Principles of Play (Attack) Possession:When a team has the ball it is vital that they retain possession of it.The longer possession is retained the more control they have of the game.
7 Principles of Play (Attack) Width:Creates gaps and stretches the defence, it gives the attackers more space to make runs and to receive the ball and to shoot/pass.It is advantageous to create space towards the touchline to spread the opposition’s defence.It allows more space for attackers to work in.It stretches the opposing defence, making them work harder, creating gaps
8 Principles of Play (Attack) Support:When a player is in possession of the ball, teammates should move into an open position to offer a passing option.Speed:To be successful in attack speed of action and thought are vital.
9 Principles of Play (Attack) Mobility:The attackers who are not in possession of the ball should move continually with purpose, in order to draw defenders, and to create and use space.Attackers need to interchange position and work on split second timing or runs to create problems for defenders.Midfielders and defenders need to be interchangeable to help support attack and cover defenceAllows players to get free to receive the ball
10 Principles of Play (Attack) Penetration:This is possible when the attacking players take on the defenders at pace and by getting in behind the defence using fast passing, dribblingDepth:This allows the player on the ball to keep possession of the ball by passing back while their team move forward to support play.Concentration:All attacking players in order to reduce attacking errors.
11 Principles of Play (Defence) Depth:This provides cover for the defender marking the ball. It also acts as a counter balance against the opposition going on the fast break.Delay:If a defender cannot gain possession of the ball from an interception or a tackle then they should delay or attempt to slow down the attack.This allows the other defenders to have time to recover, get goal side of the ball and re-position them.
12 Principles of Play (Defence) Balance:Balance is where every attacking move and pass is covered/denied by the defence.Concentration:This is required by all defending players in order to reduce defensive errors. Anticipation and good decision making limits the offensive options.Speed:The speed of recovery, action and thought are vital in defence.
13 Principles of Play (Defence) Safety/Security:In defence safety and security are the first priority. Keep all moves simple and clear your lines.Pressure:Close down the player on the ball as quickly as possible.
14 The importance of using space in attacking situations in a 4-4-2 system The four people in midfield and defence must keep their width.In doing this, the entire pitch can be used in attacking plays.Therefore there are numerous options available to exploit in attack and it is easier for the attacking team to keep possession of the ball, thus making it more difficult for the opposition.
15 The importance of using space in defence situations in a 4-4-2 system In defence, space will become limited for the opposition who are trying to attack.Therefore, making it difficult for the opposition to penetrate their attacking third of the field and create goal attempts
16 The importance of pressurising opponents in attacking and defensive situations in a 4-4-2 system This system makes it easier to employ a man-to-man marking defence or a zonal defence, because every area of the pitch should always be covered in attacking and defensive situations.Therefore it is easier to pressurise opponents into making mistakes.
17 The importance of using space in attacking and defensive situations in a 3-5-2 system The wide midfielders (or ‘wing backs’) are the most important here. They create the space in attack and defence, thus making more options available in both situations.
18 The importance of pressurising opponents in attacking and defensive situations in a 3-5-2 system Again the wingbacks play major roles here.In attack, they become midfielders. This means that the attacking will have a large number of players going forward in attack.Consequently, they are likely to overload the oppositions’ defence and force them to make errors.In defence there will be many players back helping out the team in this area, again making it difficult for the opposition
