Select Team Offense: 60 and “60 Go”
60 and “60 Go”: Level of Play
•Level of Play
Every Select Team should have this set in its
offensive playbook. The 60 set is used to
settle the ball (take the air out of it) and let
the defense rest. Coaches and players should
recognize when to use a 60 call given the flow
and strategic demands of the game. Both
“60” and “60 Go” are simple sets designed for
players of all ages and skill levels.
60 and “60 Go”: Set Up
•Set Up
This is a circle offense, meaning that no player
starts on the crease. All six offensive players
line up around the perimeter. A2 starts
directly behind the goal at “X”, while A1 and
A3 line up on the low right and left wings
respectively. A1 and A3 should be about 2-4
yards above GLE and around 10-13 yards to
the side of the goal…
60 and “60 Go”: Set Up
•Set Up (Continued)
Mid-fielders, M1, M2 and M3 line up near the
top of the box around 15-20 yards away from
the goal. M2 starts in the middle of the field,
5-10 yards above the restraining line
(mirroring A2 at “X”) and M1 and M3 set up
approximately 10 yards to his right and left
along the restraining line.

60 Offense
60 and “60 Go”: Execution
•Execution
60 is a circle offense that is intended to take
some time off the clock. 60 should be called
so the offense can get organized and slow
down the pace of the game when no
transition is immediately available. It can also
be used to shorten the length of the game by
minimizing the number of possessions…
60 and “60 Go”: Execution
•Execution (Continued)
Both coaches and players should recognize
game situations that dictate the need for a 60
call. The defense can also call it to the offense
so they can get a rest when needed. While in
60, the offense should get the ball “around”
the perimeter so every player touches the
ball. The offense does not attack the goal
unless directed by a coach, a play is called, or
pressure dictates the need.
60 and “60 Go”
•If Pressured…60 “Go”
When set up in a sixty set, coaches have the
option to immediately attack without setting
up in a specific offense. This is called 60 “Go”.
60 “Go” can also be called by players on the
field if there is pressure on either the ball or
the adjacent pass.
60 and “60 Go”
•Setup
The set up of 60 “Go” is identical to the set up
for a normal 60 set.

60 “Go” Offense
60 and “60 Go”: Execution
•Execution
The offense takes advantage of a defense that
does not cover a circle well. The offense can
be initiated from one of the high-wings (M1
or M2) or from “X” (A2).
60 and “60 Go”: Execution High Wing
•Execution High-Wing (M1 or M2)
When M1 dodges the adjacent attackman
(A1) needs to cut through and then curl back
to the ball once they get into the crease. This
motion will create space for a dodge and put
pressure on the defense. If A1’s defender
slides and there isn’t a second slide then he
should be open for a feed. A2 needs to roll
over to ball-side to provide an outlet for the
ball carrier. A3, M2 and M3 need to rotate
accordingly…

60 and “60 Go”: Execution From X
•Execution From X (A2)
When A2 dodges from behind, then the ballside attackman (A1) needs to cut through to
create space and put pressure on the defense.
If his man slides and there isn’t a second
slide, then A1 will be open for a feed on the
crease. A3 needs to get to the back side pip
and then rotate behind the goal, because if
his man slides and there is no second slide
then he should be open on the backside
pipe…
60 and “60 Go”: Execution From X
•Execution From X (A2) Continued
If A3 is not open on the backside, then he
drifts behind the goal to provide an outlet for
A2. A2 has the option to turn the corner and
shoot, feed to the topside for a shot, or roll
away from pressure to his outlet A3.

60 and “60 Go”: Final Thoughts
•Final Thoughts on 60 and 60 “Go”
It’s important to remember that 60 is a
settled offense designed to slow the game
down. If we are in 60, then we are essentially
in a holding pattern. 60 “Go” is available to
coaches as a goal attacking offense directly
out of the sixty, or if the defense is pressuring.
In both the midfield and attack initiated 60
“Go” sets, the offense ends up in a 1-3-2 set,
or what we will be calling our “13” set.
