Hey Coach: Strategy and Tactics – Let’s Talk.
We have taken the opportunity to talk briefly about strategy in this blog and before we go any further we need to differentiate between the concept of strategy and tactics. With our previous level of understanding of strategy already started we have to have a understanding of what tactics are. Tactics, basically, are the way we call the shots we have selected, to implement the specific strategy our team is playing. To simplify, if we have chosen to play a defensive strategy in the first end and a hit is called, we then get into the nuts and bolts of tactics:
- What turn do we play?
- What weight do we play?
- How much ice do we take?
- How does our sweeping effect this shot?
- How does the specific player affect this shot?
