Switch Rondo (10 mins)

Set Up: Area size can vary dependent upon level, 22 x 11 yards divided in two can work to start. 10 players total [5 red, 5 white], [good supply of balls, pinnies, cones].

Activity: In one half of the box, reds play 5 v 3, with one white player on each end. Red attempts to make 4 passes, then play one of their players into the other half. If successful, they keep possession and attempt the same on the other side. The midway line should be used as an offsides line. If white win the ball, they look to play one of their players on the end to signal a change of possession, then two reds will drop off to the ends.

Progressions: [1] limit touches, [2] must play into other half on 1 touch,

Coaching Points: speed of play, movement of support, technique of first touch, receiving the ball, passing, control, awareness, angles of passes and runs.
