Rotations



Because futsal is played in a relatively small pitch, players can’t easily come into scoring situations. Rotations can help players to come into scoring situations more often, because players that are constantly changing positions are much more difficult to defend than players that don’t move so much. The purpose of the rotation is to confuse the opponent and to make them run so they get tired. Changing the rhythm of play is also very important in futsal. If we run slow and then change our direction very fast, the player that is covering us can’t follow us and we can receive the ball easier.

    How to defend against a rotation formation in Futsal?

    • Admin says:

      Hy coachjoe,

      the “easiest” way to defend against a rotating formation in futsal is to mark your opponent men to men, but you will have to run a lot. A smarter way is to mark by zone but you will need a lot of practice before every player exactly knows where to be in a certain situation. The third option is to mark partially men by men and partially by zone. This means that players mark their opponent by men but if a player behind see that the two opponent are going to exchange positions, he tell his teammate to mark the player who is coming away from goal and he picks the player that is coming toward him. For new teams is best to start with men by men defending and then move to partially men by men and partially by zone and then to only zone marking. But it needs a lot of practice to mark effective by zone.

      So I wish you a lot of good training. :)
