10 Variations of Rondos

What is a Rondo ?

• A rondo is a type of game, similar to keep away. Usually in a rondo, one group of players are tasked with keeping possession of the ball while completing a series of passes, while a smaller group of players (sometimes a. single player) tries to win possession back.
• Rondos are used to improve player decision making, coordination, team play, creativity, competitiveness, and physical conditioning.
• Rondos take place in close proximity, with the possessing group often circled around the opposing group, however they can be done within squares and triangles.
• A rondo can be used to help improve positional awareness.
• Grid sizes and playing numbers can vary depending on age and ability.
• Dutch Legend, Johan Cruyff once quoted “Everything that goes on in a match, except shooting, you can do in a rondo.
The competitive aspect, fighting to make space, what to do when in possession and what to do when you haven’t got the ball, how to play ‘one touch’ soccer, how to counteract the tight marking and how to win the ball back.”
