Skills are a key aspect of Hattrick, determining how well the players play, and what [[wages]] you will have to pay them every week.  they also determine the [[TSI]] of a player
In Hattrick, skill levels are shown as the terms ranging from [[Denominations|disastrous]] to [[Denominations|divine]].  In many situations it is convenient to use numerical skill values instead of terms, and these numbers can be found  [[What The Words Mean| here]].
Skill levels on Hattrick are always rounded down. If you are interested in exact skill levels, check the [[subskill]]s page.
Players may need different Skills depending on their position. There are primary, secondary and some are even talking of tertiary skills. For example while a defender needs defending to do his job right, he could also use some playmaking to drive the game and some passing for special tactics.
The Hattrick community often uses ''a-skill'', ''b-skill'' and ''c-skill'' instead of primary, seconday and tertiary.
[[Stamina]] is absolutely vital for any players who use playmaking. For inner midfielders it's not a secondary skill, but a primary one together with playmaking. One of the most common mistakes by playmaking trainers is to slowly increase stamina for their players. Playmakers with anything below solid stamina are a waste of resources in a league or cup game.
If a player does not have enough stamina, a serious drop in their playmaking contribution will be noticed, particularly during the second half of matches. 
In addition to this main use, it is somewhat important for other players (see [[Special Event]]) and it is very important when using the [[Pressing]] tactics.
Training stamina is not very popular, as it may drain the [[form]] of players in the squad.
Together with stamina, [[Playmaking]] is the most important skill for all [[midfield]]ers, especially the inner ones.  It is also used by defensive forwards and offensive defenders. Offensive wingbacks use a tiny bit as well. As noted above, this skill is used in conjunction with stamina.
Almost every successful team needs good playmakers or else the team won't have a lot of ball [[possession]], which will lead to fewer scoring opportunities. The only exception are teams who specialize in using the [[Counter Attack]] tactic - but even these often need some possession to get one or two ''normal'' scoring opportunities along with their counter attack ones.
[[Wing]] skill refers to the ability to create scoring opportunities by advancing down the sides. This is obviously most useful for [[winger]]s (''a-skill''), although [[Wingback]]s also profit from it. A [[forward toward wing]] will also benefit ''a lot'' from this skill.
The most effective [[training]] type to improve the wing skill is [[crossing]].
The ball is supposed to go into the net, and [[scoring]] ability makes sure it gets there.  it is the most important ability for [[forward]]s, but not particularly important for anyone else. Any player with good scoring skill combined with good set pieces skill can score on a long shot special event.
The most efficient [[training]] type to improve scoring is [[scoring]].
[[Goalkeeping]] is the ability that [[goalkeeper]]s use (and they need it a lot!)  However, as it is the only skill they need, they rarely have any ability in other areas. The only other way to increase the performance of a goalkeeper other than training his goalkeeping skill is to have him gain [[experience]].
The scorer gets the credit, but the player giving him the decisive pass is just as important. Both forwards and midfielders, including wingers, profit from being good at this. [[Passing]] is also very important for use with tactics.  It helps to compute ratings for [[Counter Attack]], [[Attack on Wings]] and [[Attack in the Middle]].
Inner midfielders, and forwards contribute to the central attack rating by their passing ability. Wingers played offensively, normal or defensively use their passing to contribute to side attacks.  There is some debate about the contribution of passing on a winger towards middle.
The most efficient [[training]] type to train passing is [[short passes]].
[[Defending]] skill controls a player's ability to stop opponent's attacks. Unconditionally the most important ability for all types of [[defenders]]. Midfielders may also put this ability to good use.
It is also relevant on all players when using the [[Pressing]] tactic.
The most efficient [[training]] type to increase the defending skill is [[Defending]].
===Set Pieces===
One player is appointed for [[Set Pieces]]. He'll take all free kicks, penalties, and in case of a penalty shoot-out, he'll take the first penalty. In all cases, lots of skill is needed in this area.
There is also the possibility of a long shot [[Special Event]] related to set pieces for which the probability increases with a high scoring skill.
Increasing the set pieces skill does not affect the [[TSI]] and the [[wages]].
