As team strategy becomes more sophisticated, we can start to play with dynamic strategies along the width of the field. The sideline becomes and area of both limitations and opportunity, both for the offense and defense. What makes this region of the field different? Your answer to this seemingly-obvious question has large implications for your team's success.
We asked our authors what they do in their practices to prepare for sideline situations, and how it changes their on-field tactics. While we've asked our authors to approach their writing from an offensive standpoint, it is important to realize that for every offensive guru writing here, there is an equally motivated defensive coach plotting to beat those strategies. As Dr. Reznikoff says: "Greater than half of all possessions either start on the sideline or end there." Let the games begin.
