4v1 Rondo (20 mins)

Rondo

4 v 1 - 1 touch

4 lines of players who play one pass and then spin to the back of their queue.

Progression:

Rather than spinning to the back of your own queue players join one of the queues to their left or right. This adds an awareness and decision making element as players must make sure there are roughly equal numbers in each queue.

Passing Drill (20 mins)

Objectives:

To develop good habits by,

1- Receiving the ball on angles.

2- Receiving the ball on the half turn.

3- Receiving the ball with back foot.

This improves awareness and creating space as an individual.

Coaching Points:

1- All players must go to meet the ball when receiving a pass.

2- It is important that players receive the ball at an angle and with back foot (the foot furthest away from the ball) this would put players automatically on the half turn so they can see all players involved.

3- Creat space by checking (move away from the ball then return to meet it).

The benefit from this will develop a player efficiency, mobility and awareness with or without the ball.

Progression:

Change direction of the drill from anti-clockwise to clockwise.

A simple command to the players of "change" will achive this.
