4 v 2 Rondo (20 mins)

Organization:

-This is a review of one of last week's activites..Different coloured scrimmage vests are preferred ..3 seperate colours is ideal for this activity but if you do not have 3 different colours have the defenders wear or hold the vests.

-Players will play 4 v 2 in a 12 x 12 area(Adjust this size based on the quality of your players and the space available to you to accomodate your team)

-Yellow will start as defenders and blue and red as attackers

-5 passes = 1 point, if defenders (yellow) win the ball they pass to the coach.

-If ball goes out of bounds the coach will play another ball in immediately to attackers.

(If you do not have enough coach(es) to monitor each group another option is to leave a group of balls outside the grid and if the ball exits the grid an attacking player can serve a ball in to re-start the exercise. First pass is free!)

-pairs will defend for 2 minutes , COACH will then call out a different colour that will then transition to defend.

-"manage" the defenders to ensure they areproviding realistic pressure but coacht he attackers!

Coaching Points

-Support: provide good angles

-movement: move to receive. Travel as ball travels!

-penetration: Can you pass between or around defenders

-possession pass(left or right v penetrating pass(between or around defenders)...Coach the Why & When?

-message in the pass...When and why to play the front foot and when to play the backfoot

possible progression...

-adjust size of grid...make it smaller if you want to increase the difficulty

-condition player touches.ie: 2 touch
