o Offensive Organization.

o Defensive organization.

o Transition from Offence to Defense.

These four moments are always present in every single exercise. 

The physical, technical, tactical and psychological elements are never worked on a separate way.

Everything is included while the main concern of every exercise is to organize the team for one of the four moments of the game.
