Transitions are a vital part of match play - players must react quickly to winning or losing the ball because in these instances games are won or lost. It is vital that as soon as the ball is won or lost teams react instantly. An attacking team that has lost the ball must work hard to immediately win it back and a team that has won the ball must attack at pace. MORE
Info on the Pass
Info on the pass is a coaching term used to encourage players to communicate when passing the ball.
When making a pass, the player passing the ball should give information to the receiver. For example:
“Man on!” This means a player is threatening the receiving player from behind.
“Time!” This means player with the ball has enough time and space to receive the ball unopposed.
“Turn!” This instructs the receiving player to turn in the opposite direction to switch play or move forward with the ball.
