Penalty Area Rondo

Procedure:

Play begins with a 4 v 2 rondo in the central zone inside of the penalty area. Four additional players are stationed around the outside of the penalty area, teaming up with the two defenders in the 4 v 2 (Diagram A).The attackers in the 4 v 2 score points by making a certain number of consecutive passes. When the defenders in the 4 v 2 win the ball, they pass to one of their teammates outside of the penalty area to begin the 6 v 4 to goal (Diagram B). Any ball played out of the central zone (for example, a bad pass) also initiates the   6 v 4. The four outside players must stay out of the penalty area during play. When the defenders win the ball in the 6 v 4, they re-start play in the central zone.

Coaching Points:

  1. Speed of Play – Play in a one and two touch rhythm.
  2. Transition – Anticipate changes of possession and move first. 
  3. “Switching Off” – Stay involved in play, and do not become a spectator.

Progressions:

  1. Use the offsides ruleduring the 6 v 4.
  2. All six attackers may enter the penalty area.
