4 v 2 Rondos | Developing Support Play (05-P1)

Updated: Nov 10

In this opposed 4 v 2 Rondo, the possession team must keep the ball in each of the 4 squares within this 20 x 20 area, against 2 defending players who can press to regain in any area.



If defenders win the ball, they can now play a 2 v 1 in a single 10 x 10 area to make 5 passes before moving into another square to do the same. When the attacking team wins the ball back, they keep possession in the 4 v 2 again.

Key Coaching Points

  • Angles and distances of possession players to the ball in 20 x 20 and defenders press on triggers.

  • How do player rotations influence defenders and passing players? Fewer options? Easier to regain? Increased awareness of the possession team?

  • Focus on looking away from the ball to observe pressure before switching play to another box.
