Training Focus for U14 to U19:
Coaches working with these age groups should look to transition from the individual to group tactics. An evaluation of each player as well as match analysis reports should inform the coach which techniques still need to be worked on. Group tactics include, but are not limited to, passing combinations, possession, offensive and defensive shape as well as the roles of the cover and balancing defenders. Group tactics also include work with units of players, which are the defenders, midfielders and forwards.
