WEBINAR REPLAY: PLAYING OUT FROM THE BACK

Playing Out From The Back is defined as the ability 'To progress from deep areas of the pitch into more advanced areas, whilst being in control of the ball.'

Watching football games from 20 or 30 years ago, you might be surprised by the amount of long kicks goalkeepers would do from their hands, launching the ball towards the opposite end of the pitch to put pressure on the opposition.

While it still happens these days, the introduction of the 'back-pass' rule was one of the first changes that began to force a re-thinking of how teams build attacks from defensive situations.

The game has evolved greatly since the 80s and 90s. From playing styles and physical requirements to the technical and tactical approaches, added to that further rule changes like defenders being allowed inside the penalty area at goal kicks, it has promoted a more measured, controlled way of moving the ball from one end of the pitch to the other.

In our forthcoming CPD course to be launched on the MiMentor Platform soon, our Coach Development Mentor, Jamie Godbold, a UEFA A Licence Coach and former FA Tutor, investigates the concept of 'playing out from the back'.

The course will help coaches understand what playing out from the back is and the technical requirements needed to encourage it with their teams. Jamie will also look at how sides currently adopt this approach in their playing philosophy and also some session plans that you can adapt to work on in your own environment.

As part of the launch of this course, Jamie hosted a free MiMentor webinar entitled 'Playing Out From The Back'.

So, for those coaches keen to learn more about this interesting subject, you can watch the webinar again on the link below:
