Whenever one plays team sport, when it comes to performing on the field, there are three aspects that provide the beating heart for that performance, and one aspect that will destroy it.
And the three things that constitutes the beating heart, as usual aren’t complicated, though the more you know about them and implement that knowledge, the stronger the beating heart of the team’s performance becomes.
And the three aspects that lead to a strong beating heart are:
The structure is the playing structure that you use, how does your team work together and how do they perform the function and roles of the positions that each play.
The platform is those core and key skills, and the better the players get at them, the stronger the platform becomes.
The life blood of any team performance is passing, especially between the quarters marked on the field, or more commonly known as the midfield.
The thing about passing, if you ever want to speed up the pace of a game, it’s done through passing and there is two ways to do it, how quickly you pass the ball on after you receive it, and how firm or hard you pass the ball, in other words, you speed up a game by earlier passes and harder passes.
The one thing that destroys and weakens the beating heart is a term used called startled rabbit,
where people in the team get the ball, and they just run with it, and then everyone else in the team does the same as well, and then they all start using their X-factor skills all the time. The spectators may like the excitement that startled rabbits generate, but there’s generally not a lot going on and all that really happens is that they tire themselves out quicker.
It doesn’t matter the level or age that’s playing, the beating heart of all good team performance is Structure, Platform and Passing
