4v2 To 6v4 Keep Away

4v2 to 6v4 Keep Away

This is an excellent variation of a rondo keep away drill where if the defenders win the ball, they can keep possession with players on the outside of the grid.

Set Up

Set up a smaller sized grid for a 4v2 in the middle. Create a team of six and a team of four with the team of four starting inside the grid. The team of six starts with two players in the middle and the other four players around the outside as shown in the diagram.

How It Works

The team of four plays 4v2 keep away in the middle. If the two defenders in the middle win the ball they try to keep possession by passing with their teammates on the outside. Every time a team completes six passes in a row they earn a point.

Coaching Points

In the event that the two players in the middle win the ball, they will have to work hard to move and get open when working with the outside players. Every few minutes rotate players so that they get to experience different roles.
