Rondo 3v1 – One of our teaching points when it comes to passing is that we want to pass through the windows. This game allows us to replicate those situations within the play, in addition to helping players recognise and create passing windows.
Once the players get the hang of it, there are several ways that we can load the drill, including:
- giving two points to the defense for every deflection (this increases the intensity and aggressiveness of the defender).
- We can also increase or decrease the playing area to accommodate for different skill levels of our athletes.
- We can add more players on either offense or defense, depending on what we are trying to emphasise.
- We can also add one or two dribbles to the offense to allow them to create passing windows or escape from aggressive defenders.
