GK Build Rondo

Set Up: 

30 x 30 area 

A Yellow (Goalkeepers) starts with ball. 

Three passes must be completed between the reds and yellow in initial area before ball can be switched to the other side. 

If the ball is successfully passed to the opposite side, the defenders exit and two new defenders enter. 

If the defenders win the ball at any time, they score by dribbling out of play. All reds on that side of the field can step in to prevent this.

Four successful switches and switch players out/in.

Coaching Points: 

  • Attract the press by holding on to the ball
  • Recognise where press is coming from and where we should play to
  • Eyes up before we play

A Yellow (Goalkeepers) starts with ball.

Three passes must be completed between the reds and yellow in the initial area before the ball can be played into a red in the central area. The ball must reach a player in the central area before it can be switched. 

Rule: A goalkeeper can find the central red at any point

Coaching Points:

  • High intensity press from the defenders to maximise realism

Set Up: 

Half field minus 10 yards as shown. 

15 x full field zone as shown with mini goals (or gates). 

Reds look to build up play until entering blue zone. Once they enter, they can score in any of the three mini goals at any time. 

If the Blues win the ball at any point, they go straight to goal to try and score. 

Coaching Points: 

  • Alternate starting positions of the midfield Red players (e.g. wider, tighter, deeper) 
  • Encourage CB's and/or goalkeepers to retain possession in order to attract pressure
