Arrival Rondo

Objective: Improve ability to keep possession but also find second line (miss a player) and third line (pass through defenders) passes.


Set Up - 10x10 grids with either 4 (3 v1) or 6 (4 v 2) players


Rules - When a players causes possession to be lost (Defender gets the ball or the ball goes out of play) the player replaces a defender in the middle.


Coaching Points:

In Possession (Attackers)


  • Good movement off the ball to provide the player with the ball passing options.
  • Good movement off the ball to draw the defender to create more space for the team mate with the ball.
  • Quick pass when a team mate is free as moving the ball quickly tires the defence quickly.
  • Good Quality Passes - 1st line (closest team mate), 2nd line (Miss the closest team mate) and 3rd line (Play to though defenders to a team mate at the other side of the grid) passes.

Defenders

  • Positional Intelligence - Optimum position to cut out the pass and pressure the player with the ball
  • Team work (when defending with a partners) - Optimum positions to cut to hem in the player with the ball and cut out passing options
  • Decision Making - When to stand a player up and when to try and nick the ball
  • Defending Stance - Low centre of gravity. Watch the ball rather than the player.

SP1 - Switch Play

SWITCH PLAY

  • This is a three team transitional Rondo
  • Middle team are defenders and only two can press the side with the ball at one time to win the ball
  • Team in possession must make four passes then look to SWITCH PLAY to the other side
  • When play is switched the other two defenders go across and try to win the ball
  • The team that give the ball away become the defending team

Coaching Points


Quality of the link up play


Timing of movement into space of players off the ball - Not too early!


Create Space - Movement off the ball tends to drag defenders and creates space even if the player doesn't receive the ball


Quality of pass to break defensive lines - Weight, Direction and Vision
