Defensive systems – a masterclass by Fede Tanuscio

The topic for this masterclass by Fede Tanuscio will be defensive systems in hockey. The livestream was online for free on Friday, March 17, 2023. Afterwards you can watch it on demand (for subscribed and logged in members only) below.

Defensive systems

The main function of a game system, such as the defensive systems we’ll discuss today, is to get organised tactically, close spaces and to understand how to use these to your advantage. Tanuscio will talk about the principles, the development, the rigidity vs flexibility and roles & responsibilities. As well as describe the most used defensive systems and of course how to train these.
