Aims of this module
By the end of this course, you will understand:
- What is support
- The range of skills that help in support
In each game situation, you will face a range of decisions on how to support, both from the view of the ball carrier and the attacking players.
- WHY you need to support the ball and WHY the ball carrier needs to think about support,
- A range of ways on HOW to support.
This can fit into our tactics.
Tactics can be simple and complex.
