2019 Retreating Line

Capital Football will be introducing the Retreating Line Rule for the 2019 season which will affect 9th, 10th, 11th & 12th Grades.

This coaching tool has been successfully implemented in Junior Football throughout the world. It has also been used successfully by Federations in New Zealand over the past few years. 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 game involves playing the ball out from the back with defenders learning to control and accept the ball. Midfielders check to receive and play between the lines, while strikers learn to defend from the front and use the retreating line to make angled runs. This provides realistic player movement both on and off the ball, making it a great format for the modern game.

Be sure to check out the video and flyer with all the rules and regulations you need to know for the 2019 season!
