Positional Rondo in Formation


RONDO is generally used to help teach players good habits and movements while in POSSESSION.
Players set-up in specific FORMATION with aspects to age level. Players in FORMATION must stay on their marker while PASSING the ball around trying to keep away from DEFENDER press.
DEFENDERSare free to move. Players in POSSESSION move the ball creating overloads, i.e., 2v1’s - 4v2’s.


- Gradually add more DEFENDERS.
- Add multiple balls to raise player awareness.

Why Possession or Rondo?

"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.” - Johan Cruyff


- Team Collaboration and Positional Play.
- Technical Abilities
- Directional First Touch, One TouchPlay, Decision Making, and Creativity.
- Tactical Pressure, Speed of Play, and Conditioning.

Terms to consider:

- First Touch- Ability of player to self-pass.
- Angles - Ability of player to create space to receive pass.
- 1 Touch Pass - Ability to pass ball first time.
