Individual Training (within Team Training)

In football, communication between players is of the highest order. This verbal and non-verbal communication is trained in tactical training sessions. In such tactical training, the coach teaches his players a tactical reference in terms of WHAT they are supposed to do together when attacking, defending and transitioning. For example, if the team tactical reference is ‘disturbing the build-up of the opponent horizontally’ it means that players have to shift from left to right or from right to left. This is WHAT players are supposed to do. But HOW each player shifts horizontally can not be determined in advance by the coach because football is not a game of robots. The HOW of football actions in terms of position, moment, direction and speed is the responsibility of the player. It is the decision making (game insight) and the execution of decisions (technique) by individual players within the team tactical reference. This is something else than developing the communication between players (tactics) but it still does take place within the team tactical training. In other words, it is the individual training within team training.
