Tactical Soccer Situations Test aka "Quizzies"
In the spring of 1988, German coach T.K. Trapp administered a 30-question quiz that he had designed to a group of U.S. National Staff coaches. The objective of the test was to examine and make the correct tactical decisions in each of the diagrammed situations.
The NSCAA is now pleased to offer a portion of these "Quizzies" as an online resource for coaches and players to help develop their situational awareness and decision-making skills. Click here to access the quizzies.
