Need some advice here guys.....
In two weeks we play a team that is much more skilled than we are. They have a pretty creative offense, usually starting things from an overload / corner cycle (criss-cross or scissor style) and then find either a seam player creeping in from the hash marks or a guy sneaking behind the net for back door play at the far post. All 3 forwards interchange a lot, and it tends to make things pretty chaotic for our newer players. Given significantly lesser offensive skills we can't execute the way they do in practice, but I want to give ourselves the best chance to compete. Do I:
A) Drop the strong side high forward lower to cut off the seam play, but also expose the strong side point more
Leave the high forwards where they are and convince our low 3 to pick a guy early and stick with him man to man
C) Stick with the "man on + box behind" scheme, collapse the box a bit and focus on shot blocking
D) Look ahead to the next opponent and keep the beer glass full all weekend
Based on your answer, how would you get the team ready in the practices leading up to the 2 game series?
