Rondo - 3 team (20 mins)

Intervals:

2:30 min work + :30 rest x 6 reps (2 for each team)

Setup:

3 teams of 5

Two 30x20 grids with 10 yard space in between

Activity:

One team is playing defense (pressing) for each interval. 3 pressers inside the grid and extras in middle trying to cut off passing lanes.

Other teams try to keep possession by either passing within their grid or by switching to opposite grid.

Only defensive team can score: 1 point for winning ball and playing into middle (keeping possession) and 3 points for scoring in goal.

Progression:

+ Allow far-side midfielder to step into middle grid (more realistic)

Coaching Points:

+ Pressing cues -- bouncing ball, player facing wrong way, poor touch

+ Making play predictable

+ Force play backwards or sideways (and back in the same direction it came)

+ Midfielders checking shoulders to screen passing lanes
