Playing mid *Please Help!*

Hey; I got shoved into playing mid for USPA this weekend. I've never played the position in my life, but I'm new to the team and it's too late to adjust, so I'm stuck. Anything I should know? Where should I break to? What should I be watching? Tips? Help?

Also, how do I approach my coach after this tournament to request future play of mine in the snake, rather than this new, uncomfortable position I've never touched?

I'm a frequent mid player, I always find that my duty is to call positions more than anything. I hit up a post where I can watch both sides and I hit what needs help. As for your coach problem I'd try to be nice and talk to him.

Just play insert. Play back center off the break lane snake or dside then bump up from center to a temple or race. Call out positions and be ready to fill forward positions when your fronts get killed. When i play mid i play with the mindset of locking the back players and forwards down so that my front players can move up and follow behind them.
