Basic Stereotypes of Cooperation For age groups U-17 & U-19

One of the key success factors in soccer is, in addition to individuality, cooperation among players. The basis for cooperation in attack stages lies in finding a solution for different situations: 2v1, 3v1, 3v2,… Studying this subject in more detail, the author concludes that in almost all ratios there are a few dominant latent structures with their own laws, universal cooperation stereotypes: wall passing, crossings, passing to the third player, creating space, returning passes, creating a player surplus and positional cooperation. Efficient cooperation is evident in speed and harmonized recognition of the situation, movement of the players and flow of the ball. An important precondition for such play is the resolution of elementary problems at the subconscious level. In order to achieve that, a stereotype needs to be trained by numerous repetitions.

The same as subconscious adoption of technical elements, mastering the basics of cooperation increases the number of final solutions and encourages creativity in players. The Educational DVD “Progression steps of play development aims to present systemized and scientifically based work methodology. Drills are developed for: circular activity which is suitable for numerous repetitions in a short period of time; development of technique in dynamic situations; better coach control with the purpose of correcting and insisting on demands; as well as control over physical strain. Depicted exercises can be used with different variations: with and without opponents; at different distances; with finishing at the goal, etc.
