So I am a high school coach and I am considering playing a 2-3-3-2 formation. I was just going to see if anyone out there had used this formation. If so what were some of the strengths or problems you faced with it. Thanks for your input

Its ALWAYS about the strengths and weaknesses of the players available.
I've never used this particular formation but have used a 5 3 2 in its traditional way

My thought would be playing a defensive mid in front of the two central defenders. Then the outside two defensive mids would play as defenders pushed forward to make overlapping runs. Then play three attacking central mids and two forwards . Do you see any major flaws in my thought process . Our any suggestions you think would be better to play this system. I think this system will fit my players skill and mentality very well.

I tend to go for two in front of the central defensive pair and depending on whether the full backs push up then one of the two drops to cover
I then favor an attacking mid in front of the screen two who dictates play somewhat

That makes sense. By playing three players at that defensive mid role I was hoping to create a wider variety of attacking runs from the back which I was thinking would be harder for opponents to defend. While always making sure we defended with at least three at all times. Thanks for your input I always find your insight helpful.

Well we had our first scrimmage the other day and the formation worked very well really gave the opponent a hard time with the congested middle of the field and allowed us space to attack outside.
