  • All players must have their positions perfectly defined as the game evolves.
  • Each player must position himself in the appropriate spaces in relation to the ball.
  • All players must be positioned diagonnaly in relation to the ball and be mobile at all times.
  • Players must understand that even if not directly involved in the play they are helping the team.
