Week 4 Outdoor

This week’s topic is receiving and ball control.  Coaches will look at body position, scanning for space, first touch and movement with the ball.

What is “Playing Out From The Back?”

Playing out from the back in soccer refers to a strategic approach where a team initiates their attack from their own defensive third, typically starting with the goalkeeper distributing the ball to defenders rather than opting for a long clearance upfield. This tactic is often associated with possession-based football and teams that prioritize ball control and building attacks patiently from the back.

Overall, playing out from the back is a strategic approach that emphasizes ball retention, intelligent positioning, and effective passing to control the game and create scoring opportunities. It requires technical proficiency, tactical awareness, and good decision-making from all players involved.
