Here are your highlights for this week:
Practice of the week
A really good rondo, which isn’t just about possession, but hitting the middle player(s) with splitting passes.
Topic of the week
Talking of rondos: why are they such good practices, and which coaching points can help us coach about? Jonas Munkvold recently shared a nice introduction to rondos, covering all of this in some detail. Well worth a read.

Always nice to watch a good coach in action! Here, Dick Bate coaching about the defensive role of three central midfielders.
