6v3 Rondo

Team that loses possession becomes defense.

Encourage quick tranisition (counter press) - don't let opponents connect the first pass if possible. Apply immediate pressure.

Coaching Points

- Pressure/Cover

- Eliminate passing lanes with positioning

- Set traps - allow passes to certain players (keeping the game in front) slowing progress allowing team mates to reduce defending area and make play predictable giving more chances for interceptions.

Played in zones 15x5 yards apart

Two end teams attempt to connect passes through the middle zone. 1 point for a pass on the outside, 2 points for a split pass. Ball must be played on the ground.

Both end teams transition to defense to prevent middle team scoring. If the middle team score they replace the team at the end they scored on.
