Soccer Formations —

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking during this off season about what formation I’ll have my U12 boys playing this spring, and how that will help when we move to U14 in the fall and start playing 11v11.  I’m pretty sure I want to play a 4-4-2 with a diamond mid-field, but what to do this spring. 

The two formations I think I’ll be focusing on are a 2-4-1 and a 3-3-1.  The 3-3-1 because the boys are familiar with it, as we played that way for most of last fall, and the 2-4-1 to get them used to a diamond mid-field formation.  Should be an interesting season, especially with a rec league tournament in the spring.
