This presentation also works on intelligent runs OFF the ball and player body positioning to receive and improve their peripheral vision.
1. Attacking: Based on the 5 corridors width-wise we want all 5 corridors to have players in them.
Based length–wise we want a maximum of 2 of 3 zones filled; with the exception of the keeper.
2. Defending: Based on the 5 corridors width-wise we want a maximum of 3 corridors filled with players; preferably 2.5 if possible.
Based length-wise we want a maximum of 2 of 3 zones filled; preferably the whole team is condensed into 1.5 zones or at most half a field.
3. Angles and Timing of Passes and Runs: Moving and passing into HALF SPACES between opponents positioning.
4. Teaching Side on Positioning: Players position so they are AT LEAST side-on improving their PERIPHERAL VISION at ALL times on the field of play.
Phase One: Playing in 5 Corridors from a 1-4-3-3 Widthwise
Defensive Shape Start Position
Playing in 5 corridors and 3 zones to help anddefine the positioning of players. This is our starting position of 1-4-3-3. The keeper wins the ball and we change shape from defensive to attacking shape.
Phase Two: Too Spread Out From Goal To Goal
Team is too big with too much space to allow for a counter attack. So even when attacking we have to think about if we lose it what do we do. Players are spread out in 3 Zones. On the other hand if you don’t want to risk being caught high defensively with a ball in behind you then you may set up deeper like this.
