Reading Between the Lines

Whether you’re a player, a captain or a coach, you will have invariably dealt with lines – either being called or calling them.

I think there are 4 scenarios for calling lines which depend on the type of game you’re playing:

  1. If you are playing a team that is either stronger or weaker than you, I think it’s a good idea to call positions and rotate among lines.
  2. If you are playing an evenly matched team and you will end up trading points most of the game, I think it’s a good idea to call O and D lines.
