System Fluidity

A team's system fluidity refers to the extent to which the team's playing system enables players to share positional responsibilities.

A team implements its system fluidity by incorporating it into the tactical roles of its players using tactical instructions as appropriate.

Levels of system fluidity include more structured, more fluid and flexible.
