Teamwork: Simply stated, it is less me and more we.

Defending thought of the day

As you are closing the player down who is receiving the ball with his back to goal, get "sideways on" and force him to play where you want him to. If you stay "flat" with your back to goal, it will be easier for him to turn and beat you.

Offensive thought of the day

Begin to make your run to support the ball as the ball is traveling to the player that you are trying to support. This requires reading/predicting what will happen in advance.

Never mistake activity for achievement.
John Wooden  

Defending thought of the day

Force the attacking player to play where he doesn't want to go.

Offensive thought of the day

Look where to play the ball before (as it is moving to you) before the ball comes to you. To look after is too late, and can delay the timing of the runs.

"Take your victories, whatever they may be, cherish them, use them, but don't settle for them."       -  Mia Hamm

Defending thought of the day

In 1v1 defending, be patient, make the player on the ball have to beat you, don't beat yourself by "stabbing" or "diving in".

Offensive thought of the day

In making runs without the goal try to "beat" your defender by getting between him and the ball AND him and the goal. YOU get ballside/goalside on HIM.

  Countless times a team that was not nearly as talented as their opponent won the match because they contested every ball as if it was their last and scrapped until the very end. - Mia Hamm

Defending thought of the day

Win not only the initial ball, but the secondary ball after the first ball is won.

Offensive thought of the day

Constantly prowl for the loose ball around the 18 yard box, and finish it.

“Individuals play the game, but teams beat the odds.” (SEAL Team saying)

 The secret is to work less as individuals and more as a team. As a coach, I play not my eleven best, but my best eleven.” – Knute Rockne

Defending thought of the day

When tackling a player on the ball, the lower center of gravity usually wins the ball. Bend your knees and get your backside down low!

Offensive thought of the day

Play quick, but don't hurry.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is not an act, but a habit. Nobody can reach the top  without the unrelenting efforts of all. - Michael Useem
