This practice is designed to show players When and How to Support Behind the Ball, and When and How to Support in Front of the Ball.
It is stated that in most games the ball is out of play or at rest for around 30 minutes. In an even game each side has an average of 30 minutes ball possession. The rest of the time you are either trying to win the ball back from opponents or trying to support and retain possession of the ball to attack. The more we have the ball, the better chance we have of winning the game.
It is a fact that when attacking defenders will generally outnumber you. Players must appreciate it is a vital quality to understand How, Where and When to support the man on the ball and the only two factors that matter all over the field are Angle and Distance.
With an increase in the pace of the game and the physical demands made on players, the ability of one team to control the ball becomes a major factor and can be looked at in different ways. With good possession we dictate how much running our team and individuals do.
