More Features

Each system has an introduction page that provides an overview of the system, which could be historical, philosophical, psychological or strategic in its nature.

It then describes the team requirements to play the particular system, discussing players’ skill, physical fitness and mental preparation demands.

We provide coaching requirements to give an understanding of what to expect and how to go about developing the team.

Finally, we briefly discuss game strategy, strengths and vulnerabilities and how to respond to opponents in some key situations.

The second page of each system has four diagrams with accompanying instructions. The first diagram shows a picture of the basic line up and describes responsibilities of each player. The second, third and fourth diagrams show positional plays for defending, transitioning and attacking. Player movement and tactics are indicated.
