In this work we have carried out a conceptual approach to speed in team sports, in which we have emphasised the complex character involved, as the expressions are multiple and varied which in a complementary and overall manner, appear in each one of the episodes of the game whose common denominator is the revealing of high speed levels. We have also put forward a certain conceptual desagreement existing in the specialised literature on this subject at the moment of defining speed in football. In this context, in which speed is seen as a complex reality as to its internal structure and multi-varied in its exteriorisation method, this, in its application to football, has been defined as the capacity of a team and/or player to efficiently resolve and with a high rhythm or measure of intervention the tasks/objectives consubstantial to the different phases and subphases of the game.
Once developed our conceptual approach to speed in team sports, we have presented a new system of observing collective conducts (ballgram) which, suitably adapted, will allow us to control and register speed in an objective way, mainly in its collective aspect.
