3 Back Face-Off Set
BEGINNER TRANSITION SET
- This is a basic defensively oriented face-off set up (set play), where all players have a set responsibility (the opposite being a 2-1-2 balanced set - not shown in diagram). There are 3 defenders in a triangle formation near the defensive restraining line, with one player on the offensive side of the restraining line.
- The lone player on the offensive side of the ball is usually the teams best loose ball player, while the other 3 on the defensive side of the ball should also be high calibre loose ball specialists.
