The sample consisted of six coaches, whose interviews were tabulated and analyzed based on Collective Subject Discourse method. The results of defensive contents showed that is important the development of the individual system, the different technical and tactical elements and to teach some zonal systems. On the offensive content emphasizes argue the need of different tactical-strategic options facing the individual and zonal defensive systems, and also noted that some coaches value the efficient execution of technical movements and others that are more concerned with players game comprehension and the multiple experiences of them.
