Developing Players with Rondos Using the Soccer Awareness Philosophy - Part 1 by Mr. Wayne Harrison

This 120 page Book is part 1 of Wayne Harrison exploring the use of rondos in youth soccer. Rondos are a great way to prepare players for the game situations and especially the fast decision making needed within the game. He has included as a way to work into these game situations many Rondo ideas that he feels are great foundation builders for players learning to combine and play together. He has stayed with simplistic ideas that all levels of players can try and be successful at. It is up to each coach to work out how to make it work for their players.

Though the foundation of the basic rondo stays the same; we explore different ways to present it. It can be made easier or more difficult based on the number of touches players are allowed, for example, so it benefits ALL players who practice with them; also the size of area they play within can be manipulated to change the challenge.
