SoccerHelp Premium contains over 300 pages about soccer formations and how to teach soccer positions. The soccer formations diagrams will help you choose the best formation for your Rec or Travel team. There is a great deal of information about different formations for 11 vs. 11, 9 vs. 9, 8 vs. 8, 7 vs. 7, 6 vs. 6, 5 vs. 5 and 3 vs. 3.

Your soccer formation can mean the difference between success and failure. You should choose the formation and Style of Play that gives your team the best chance for success. Your Style of Play includes whether your Fullbacks Push Up when you attack or Defend Deep and whether your team plays a Possession Style, a Long Ball Style of Play or a mixture of both.

When choosing a formation and Style of Play you will want to consider your player's ability, speed, endurance, the number of subs you have, the length of your games, how your opponents attack and defend, the length of the field you play on, and how many players you have who are scared of being bumped by opposing players or of being hit by the ball. The soccer formation diagrams discuss the benefits of various formations. We also recommend you emphasize Bravery by using our B Patch to reward bravery and that you play the Premium "Strength on the Ball" game which teaches players to get used to being bumped.
