Rondos-small group possession (25 mins)

Organization:

Choose 1 of the possession/Rondo activites in the image above...

Rondo 1:

-4 v 2 possession in a 10 x 10 area. Players all operate within the grid.

-award attacking players 1 point if they achieve "x" amount of predetermined passes..Suggested 5 passes= 1 point

-switch defenders after 90-120 seconds("Manage" defenders if necessary to ensure appropriate pressure)

-modify size of grid depending on success of players

possible progressions..

-condition/touch limit on player touches

-decrease size of grid to increase difficulty

Rondo 2:

-5 v 2 within a 12 x 12 grid. 4 attacking players along the perimiter of the grid and 1 attacking player inside v 2 defenders.

-condition touch limit for outside support players(suggested 2 touch)..unlimited for players in grid.

-switch defenders after 90-120 ec

-if the 2 defenders win the ball they try and keep possession v 1 defender to achieve a predetermined number of passes for 1 point. (So the defenders are practicing "proactive defending " in trying to retain the ball and NOT kicking the ball away).

-award attacking players 1 point if they achieve "5" consecutive passes...

-modify size of grid depending on success of players

possible progression...

-condition player touches.

-increase passing count to score a point

-players must play "through" central player..

-make grid smaller to increase difficulty

Coaching Points:

-Support: good angles of support... support- left,right & central..near & far

-Movement: Timely movement to support player with ball. Travel as the ball travels!

-Penetration: Pass between or around defenders to eliminate them

4 v 4 directional to targets (25 mins)

Organisation

-In an area 20 x 20 teams play 4 v 4 directional to targets. Blues attack north to south, and Reds from east to west. (add neutrals if numbers are odd and/or add a second target if necessary). Try and coach on natural stoppages or within the flow!!

-Players keep possession and seek to pass to support players for a point. They then look to attack in opposite direction.

-When a player passes to a target player they leave the area and the target dribbles into the grid and seeks to attack in the opposite direction

Methodical development(if necessary)

-condition/limit touches

Coaching Points

-Dispersal/width: Get BIG when your team has the ball! Stretch the field..

-Depth/Support: The player on the ball has support within 360 degress, near, far timely support

-Movement/mobility: move to receive

-Penetration: Can you pass around or between players

-Creativity

-3 P's - posession, patience, penetration
