Our methodology

TacticUP assesses the player's game-reading and decision-making skills through real-world game situations from the world's top football competitions. The following 12 principles are assessed:

Offensive principles

Ilustração de uma penetração em um jogo de futebol

Action to advance with the ball to the opponent's goal line, that is, to decrease the distance between the player in possession of the ball and the opponent's goal

Ilustração de uma cobertura ofensiva em um jogo de futebol

Actions of approaching or distancing of the player in possession of the ball, to ensure safe passing line/zones and increase the speed and rhythm of play (inside the center of play)

Ilustração do espaço com bola em um jogo de futebol

Movements of the player in possession of the ball towards the own team’s goal line or either touch line, in order to gain space and time for a better subsequent action

Ilustração do espaço sem bola em um jogo de futebol

Movements of the players without the ball performed ahead of the line of the ball (outside the center of play), in order to allow longer and deep passes

Ilustração de mobilidade em um jogo de futebol

Movements performed by the players without the ball behind the last line of defenders

Ilustração de uma unidade ofensiva em um jogo de futebol

Action of organization of the attacking lines in order to maintain teams' unity and allow a more collective play

Defensive Principles

Ilustração de uma contenção em um jogo de futebol

Actions to delay the player in possession of the ball to move towards the goal

Ilustração de uma cobertura defensiva em um jogo de futebol

Actions to ensure support to the first defender who is performing delay to the player in possession of the ball

Ilustração do equilíbrio de recuperação em um jogo de futebol

Movements of defensive players performed in the less offensive half of the center of play to increase pressure on the player in possession of the ball, in order to recover the ball or reduce passing lines behind the ball line

Ilustração do equilíbrio defensivo em um jogo de futebol

Movements performed in zones of play to ensure defensive stability for the team (allow better defensive balance)

Ilustração da concentração em um jogo de futebol

Movements of the defensive players performed to increase protection of the goal and force the opponent’s attacking actions towards the sides of the field

Ilustração de uma unidade defensiva em um jogo de futebol

Actions to ensure the organization of the defensive lines to allow the team to defend as a unity or block and obtain more defensive protection

We suggest that the evaluation be re-done after approximately 25 training sessions to monitor the players' development and use updated information to qualify the work performed.
