CREATING PLAYERS FOR THE MODERN GAME

In the video above New Zealand Football explains the 'Retreating Line Rule' (which comes into play for the 2019 Junior season) and offers some good drills for all junior footballers and junior football coaches.

The Retreating Line rule enables and encourages our young footballers to start to develop and enjoy a style of play in keeping with Worlds best practice and New Zealand Football’s playing philosophy.

The implemented rule has been met with fantastic feedback from players, coaches, spectators and parents alike. The Retreating Line helps create a game which is enjoyable to play, watch and coach.

The rule will create more opportunities for players to:

  • Build attacking play from the back by playing out from the goalkeeper
  • Recognise opportunities to play through the thirds
  • Identify movements to receive and play between opposition units
  • Learn effective ways to press from the front
  • Be educated in the offside rule and learn how to time forwards runs

To learn more watch the video above and download the New Zealand Football information flyer with all the rules and regulations you need to know for the upcoming 2019 Junior season.
