Warm-up: Rondo

Organization:

10 x 10 or 15 x 15 depending on numbers

Player 1 (defender) : 2 (attackers) ratio

Max amount of player in a grid = 5 attackers

Instructions:

1. Possession game where there is 1 defender every 2 players. Defender tries to steal the ball. Attackers try to possess. (Much like keep away)

2. Defender tries to touch the ball. If he/she does they switch with the player who lost possession.

3. If the ball goes out the defender stays the same (defenders must touch or steal the ball away to become an attacker)

4. Progress to Rondo transfer box (P3)

Progressions:

(P1) - 5 passes equals a life against the current defender. Must stay in for a second round after touching the ball

(P2) - A nutmeg or a through ball (if there are two defenders) counts away a life against the defenders.

(P3) - Rondo transfer: two grids are combined and the teams work against each other

* Note: Rondos should not exceed more than 6 players. Keep size small to increase touches and off the ball movement. Rondos can be 3v1, 3v2, or 4v2. *

Keep your head up - (1) Look for open space; (2) If a player is already at the gate your headed towards find a different one.

Individual technique - Messi vs. Ronaldo

Change in speed and direction

Progressions:

P1 - Tell the players that every time they go through a blue gate they must then go through a yellow gate

P2 - See if anyone catches on to the triangle gate(s)

P3 - Decrease the time
