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:
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
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)
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
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
Movements performed by the players without the ball behind the last line of defenders
Action of organization of the attacking lines in order to maintain teams' unity and allow a more collective play
Actions to delay the player in possession of the ball to move towards the goal
Actions to ensure support to the first defender who is performing delay to the player in possession of the ball
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
Movements performed in zones of play to ensure defensive stability for the team (allow better defensive balance)
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
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.
