Soccer Passing Drills

Why youth soccer coaches need to teach Rondos

Passing in soccer is one of the most fundamental parts of the game. Every pass is different and requires players to learn different ways in which a pass can be made in a game. To teach players to improve their team passing coaches rely on Rondos.

Rondos are widely used by the best professional coaches and clubs in the world, with them being credited as the “most significant and important part of Guardiola’s training ground routines”. “Every training session at Man City, at Barcelona and at Bayern begins with a Rondo”, they are a “fundamental part of the development of Guardiola’s teams” (Tifo Football 2018).

No other training exercises compare to Rondos in terms of their ability to improve so many parts of a player’s individual skill and team-play simultaneously. Barcelona manager and ex-player under Pep, Xavi Hernandez, described them as “the best exercise. You learn responsibility and learn not to lose the ball”. The Coerver Rondo program demystifies the drills and exercises used by the footballing world’s elite and offers them to coaches at all levels.
