Good afternoon, coaches. I coach a U10G travel team playing 7v7; the team would have moved up next season to play 9v9. However, new rules are being instituted for the Fall so that U10 will be 6v6 and U11/12 will be 8v8. I've been playing a 2-3-1 with my team and had intended to transition to either a 3-2-3 (triangles and diamonds) or a 4-3-1 (more synergies with the 2-3-1 and like the potential to build this out to 4-3-3, with flat back four, FBs pushing up and providing attacking width, three-person MF) for U11. But now that we're moving to 8v8, I need a rethink. Any suggestions? I'm leaning towards a 2-3-2 (triangles and diamonds, but also an easy transition from 2-3-1). Also, I'll probably help out a new U10 coach next season; any thoughts on 6v6? I think 2-3 is probably most common, but don't like the lack of depth, and to address the depth, you'd essentially end up with a 2-1-2 or a 2-2-1 anyway, so why not start there?
