Coaches Corner

This page is going to be used as a source of information for coaches of this club and any one else who wants to look.


The aim of this page is to present a topic, related to football to challenge Coaches/Parents thoughts about individual topics.

As well as providing thoughts and resources for Coaches/Parents to expand their knowledge and skills.

Is it a Shape or a Formation?

We have all heard the debate about a formation such as 4-4-2, 3-5-2, 4-1-4-1 etc.

Is this the truth? From watching the current game at the top level does a team ever stay in this formation 100% of the time?

Often the team has a minimum of two different shapes, depending upon if they have the ball or not?

This was a question posed on a podcast that I have been recently listening to and is done by some of the Coaches from West Kent FC.
