4v2 Penetration Rondo (25 mins)

Intervals:

2 min work + 1 min rest x 6 reps = 18 min

Setup:

30x15 split in half

2 teams of 4

4v2 in one grid

Activity:

Attacking team is possessing to penetrate to other half of grid. Offside line applies.

If defending team wins ball, they play to two other players joining play in other grid --> trans ition.

Coaching Points:

~ Up-back-through (3rd man run) - weakside player makes run into space as ball is laid off

~ Give and go - Play ball high and get into forward space

~ Spin off - Highest player spins off and runs into forward space; "Slingshot" (must pull back to create momentum to go forward)

Windows to finish on goal (25 mins)

Intervals:

2 min game + 1 min rest x 6 games = 18 min

Setup:

50x30 grid on top of 18 yard box

3 teams of 5

5v5 in the middle of grid with extra players on outside ("in window") between two cones

Activity:

Team in possession must connect both wide players before going to goal.

Top of the 18 acts as offside line (defenders can't drop until ball has passed)

Coaching Points:

~ When to possess vs. when to penetrate and how that affects movement off ball

~ Forward runs when player on ball has time and space (supporting runs when they don't)

~ Once attacking, look for overloads (usually out wide)

~ Once in box either drive towards goal or (more likely) drive to endline and near post for cutback cross
