Choosing Formations And Style Of Play

1 post in this topic

Every soccer coach, whatever age group they're teaching, has to decide which style of play suits the team's strategy and what formation they will play.

You have to work out the best formation for your team. If it’s 7-a-side, should you play 2-2-2 or 3-2-1? Or at Under 11 and 12 when you have gone to 11-a-side, you need to decide between 4-4-2 or 4-3-3.

It's a good idea to have a strategy to build your formation around and you have two choices:

1. Counter-attacking style

2. Play-making style

Each style has its own strengths and weaknesses and it's your job as coach to work out which style suits your team.
