Double rondo (30 mins)

2 groups:

1 group does double rondo, while other group does 2v2+2 rondo.

Setup:

9 players

two adjacent 10x10 grids

Activity:

4 outside players + inside neutral combine to keep possession from 2 defenders.

When defenders win ball they play across to other grid and become outside attacker for that grid.

Attackers that were on middle line become defenders.

Neutral switches grids to be CM.

Coaching Points:

+ Why do we play to other grid immediately after winning ball?

+ Why do players that won ball join the other grid?

+ In possession: Create angles, receive opposite foot. Check shoulders.

+ Out of possession: Work as a team, make play predictable, limit space to defend.
