More specifically we would like to learn the following:

    *I would also like to learn  the best attacking and defending formations as well as tactics.

    *What to look for in athletes when selecting a team for different positions i.e. defenders, mid fielders as well as strikers.

    *In a camping situation, what are some of practical motivational strategies that a coach can utilize to get all athletes and technical staff fired up and ready for even the greatest challenges in their carriers.
