To further enhance our member’s understanding on the implementation and player development benefits of the retreat line in our grassroots game a webinar has been scheduled for Tuesday, March 17, 2015 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

The retreat line has been introduced in the grassroots game over the past year to help develop a young player’s ability to play out from the goalkeeper and keep possession as they build an attack.

This teaching tool has also been used to help build confidence in players as they retain possession of the ball.

During the webinar the rationale behind the retreat line, the procedure and also training activities will be covered to help coaches, players, parents, game leaders and referees understand more about the retreat line. The webinar is open to all members.
