Formation Based Soccer Training is a unique new training method which can be used to teach any soccer formation while at the same time teaching individual technique and group tactics. Any training theme can be taught using this formation based system while at the same time teaching a game day formation and system of play within that formation. It doesn't matter if a coach plays a 4-4-2, a 4-3-3, a 4-2-3-1, or a 3-5-2, using a high or low pressure defense or an off balanced offense; every formation and every system within that formation can be taught at the same time as any technical and tactical aspect of the game including individual dribbling skills, passing, trapping, third man runs, recognizing visual cues, crossing, finishing, small and large group tactics, zonal or man for man defending, the off side trap, and every other individual and group technical and tactical aspect of the game.

The biggest difference between the usual theme oriented approach to training and Formation Based Soccer Training is that all exercises in a formation based system must be directional and include position-specific responsibilities in order to closely simulate game conditions. This not only coaches the players to improve the vital techniques of the game but also teaches them how to apply the techniques to actual game situations.

The purpose of this book is to enhance usual theme oriented training sessions, not to discourage their use. This system can be used for every training session for a full season, or it can be used sporadically one or two days per week. The System is flexible enough to be used to correct any individual or group deficiency, without a major change in a coach's basic style of coaching.
