4v2 rondo

Method: 4v2 rondo with transition to defend. 4 men on the outside look to keep the ball for as long as possible within 45 seconds. If the 2 defenders win the ball back, they should look to break out of the zone quickly, where team of 4 must transition to defend and prevent a breakout and look to establish possession again. 

Coaching Points: Movements/angles to receive, defenders pressing together - angles of support, fast reactions in transition, speed of play.

Method: Team in possession look to keep the ball and move it quickly to unbalance opposition. Each team has one player in an end zone acting as a striker. When the opposition win the ball back, they should look to play forward quickly or establish good possession - the team who has lost possession must react quickly to transition to defend and stop the opposition from playing into the striker and scoring via recovery runs and pressing aggressively

Coaching Points: Recovery runs, delay ball going forward, body shape in press - force inside or outside? compact in shape - stop opposition playing through central areas where they can score.

Coaching Points: creativity on the ball and movements to receive/run into space. Relative unit press the ball immediately once ball is lost, recovery runs, defend from the front, pendulum effect with full backs/defensive unit, midfield 3 press cover, balance. Units move together
