5v3 - Rondo (20 mins)

Organisation - Attackers 5v3. Position specific to our 7v7 formation 1-3-2-1. Defenders look to win the ball back by applying pressure and intercepting passes, If defenders win it back they can score in the goal as quickly as possible if they do, they swap with the 3,2 & 9. 5 & 8 always stay.

Dont expect 10+ passes the first few weeks of trying the practice.

Coach decides what the want to work on during the practice E.g Support play, breaking lines, combinations, passing & receiving skills.

Progressions : - If the outside players take more than 2 they can be tackled.

5 - On the ball - try to break the lines & retain possession

- Off the ball - try to support the ball

3 & 2 - Look to recieve the ball with an open body to play forwards as much as possible.

- Try to combine with 8 to play forwards

8 - On the ball - Try to play quickly to avoid being tackled

- Off the ball - Try to take up positions inbetween defenders to get on the ball

9 - Move in relation to the ball and provide passing options as much as possible.

Penetrate – breaking though defence

Create width and depth – spread out side to side and top to bottom

Support play – players support the man on the ball giving passing options

Movement – making runs to draw defenders out of position

Creativity – Skills and the element of surprise
