Final Pass - teach patience

The Law of Possession

The more space, the more time to execute with quality. Time and space enables quality actions, without time and space, players struggle to execute.

High pressure defence closing spaces/channels quickly reduces attackers time on ball. When attackers don’t have time, it results in lower quality attacking play.


  1. Create time and space by finding space and moving into it
  2. Move off the ball is critical to find that space
  3. Movement makes it more difficult to be marked and gives you time to execute  with a higher level of quality
