The rondo keep away drill is a simple warm-up drill to get players sharp on the ball before a soccer practice or game.
Set up grids and get players into groups of four to eight. Each group needs one to two pinnies and a soccer ball.
How It Works
Have players play keep away with one or two players in the middle. If the players in the middle win the ball, they switch with the outside players. Challenge the offensive players to see how many passes in a row they can complete.
Encourage speed of play and communication from the offensive team. Encourage hustle and teamwork from the defenders.
