Academy Coach Course


Mobility interchange of positions is a fundamental attacking principle in soccer that focuses on creating movement and fluidity within the attacking team’s formation. This principle aims to confuse the opposition’s defence by frequently changing positions between players, allowing them to create gaps and overloads that can be exploited to create goal-scoring opportunities.

Benefits of Mobility

The successful implementation of Mobility Interchange of Positions in a team’s attacking play offers several advantages:

Increased unpredictability: By constantly moving and changing positions, the attacking team can keep the opposition guessing and make it harder for them to defend effectively.

More passing options: Mobility Interchange of Positions enables players to provide passing options in different areas of the field, making it easier to maintain possession and create scoring chances.

Creating space: By frequently changing positions, players can create space for themselves and their teammates, making it easier to penetrate the opposition’s defensive lines.

Versatile attack: Mobility Interchange of Positions enables teams to attack through various channels and methods, making their offensive play more unpredictable and harder to defend against.

Key Concepts of Mobility

To effectively implement the principle of Mobility Interchange of Positions, coaches must teach players the importance of the following concepts:

Movement and fluidity: Players must be able to move and change positions quickly and fluidly to create gaps and overloads in the opposition’s defence.

Communication and teamwork: Effective communication and teamwork are crucial for successful implementation of Mobility Interchange of Positions. Players must be aware of each other’s movements and positions to create passing options and overloads.

Spatial awareness: Players need to develop an understanding of their surroundings and be able to identify areas of the field where they can exploit space.

Technical skills: Players must possess a range of technical skills, such as passing, dribbling, and shooting, to effectively execute Mobility Interchange of Positions.

In the subsequent lessons of this training course, we will delve deeper into the specific moments when Mobility Interchange of Positions should be employed, the technical and tactical skills required for successful implementation, and the role of each player in applying this attacking principle.
