Using Spacing On Set Plays And Corner Kicks

San Jose vs LA Galaxy







Using spacing on set plays and corner kicks is so important to coaching in making sure all angles

are covered to finish a well played ball. The next rule by a player is to follow that spacing and being

ready for the strange bounce that brings that ball right to you within 9 yards of the goal. That’s the

difference between a win and a loss. Spacing is keeping yourself open so a team mate can find you,

sometimes it’s better to stop and stay open than move forward and be covered up by a defender.
