4th Annual Pancake Breakfast for the Foodbank


Playing Characteristics of the Various Numbers

When we start to think about the general playing characteristics associated with each number, we start to see how all of this makes sense from coaching tactical perspective, from a scouting and recruiting perspective and from a player education perspective.

Coaches, with their new education, are now evaluating the tactical adjustments necessary for their system of play based on the qualities of their players.

While recruiting for a college or national team, coaches and scouts can set out to identify and organize the maze of players more easily.

For players, they can start to identify with different roles based on their skills and abilities

So, what are the numbers as they relate to the positions and what are some basic characteristics of each?

1 Goalkeeper
Technically proficient
Solid technical passing abilities
Strong distribution decisions
Gifted athlete


2&3 Outside Backs (Right & Left)
Ability to play great long service
Strong at defending 1 vs. 1
Speedy player able to cover ground on the flanks
Solid technical passing abilities


4&5 Center Backs (Left & Right)
Consistent players who are organizers and leaders
Tall and Strong
Ability to cover ground – especially laterally and vertically
Technically strong defensively
Strong tackler
Strong in the air


6 Defensive Midfielder
High work rate
Ability to keep the ball (vision and technical passing)
Tactically astute
Strong in air
Strong tackler


8 Center Midfielder
Endless work rate – speed and endurance
Good leadership and organization
Creative playmaker
Strong in air
Long range finishing ability
Ability to provide defensive pressure


7&11 Winger (Right & Left)
Very fit
High Work Rate
Ability to make long runs and recover
Strong 1 vs 1 attacking ability
Flank service
Long range shooting


10 Attacking Center Midfielder
Finishing ability
Clinical passing in final third to create scoring opportunities
Strong 1 vs 1 in final third
Makes play predictable through putting pressure on defense


9 Forward
Ability to play with back to the goal
Creativity and technical finishing abilities
Strong and tough

The introduction of the numbering system to our coaching and player education is a step in the right direction.  The mainstream discussions that are happening through the media and on the sidelines are a clear indication of the continued growth of the game .  These discussions are a benchmark indicator that every one is becoming more tactically aware. Parents gaining an understanding of the numbering system will certainly continue the momentum.

NDSC needs your help

North Delta Soccer Club is looking for volunteer persons to act as Harassment and Conflict Resolution Officers within the Club. This would be a two party position one male and one female. This would be a non-voting executive position. Persons experienced in Law Enforcement or Human Resource industry would be beneficial but not mandatory. The Club would be prepared to offer and pay for outside training in this role. It would be expected that this position would not involve a large time commitment, but may at times require your attention. This position would not be involved in any game day occurrences related to Red Cards or Yellow Cards by either players or coaches; those are handled by the District Discipline Committee or BC Soccer Assoc. At times there may be issues pertaining to parent involvement in game day situations, where the club may request your independent involvement in those occurrences. If you would be interested in helping out in this type of role within the club, please communicate your interest or questions to the VP North Delta Soccer Club. Ideally, we would like this to be a two or three year commitment to the Club, however, we do realize that could not be mandatory.

Thank you for your consideration.
