Tactical situation to improve the decision making about when to create a numeric superiority or when to keep being a support in an intermediate distance.
There are teams that, while they play they get out of shape constantly. With this drill you would be able to improve the offensive tactical balance.
Once the ball is won back, the first option that all the coaches like is to try to move up the field and to try to benefit from the possibility of a defensive imbalance. Let’s practice it.

To control the game pace we need the players to dominate the offensive tactical principals of delaying, change of pace etc.
The football coaches usually ask their players to play easy and safe once they win the ball back. For doing this, it is key to put the ball away from the zone where to win the ball back
Hexagonal rondo to work the switch of play, the players profiles and deciding before receiving the ball.
One of the constant aspects of the game is to play easy (the coach asks so many times for this) and be able to differentiate when to play with the farthest or with the intermediate players in order to overcome rivals (both attacking and defending).
When winning the ball back, we take it out of a pressing zone, we reorganize and we try to break a defensive line. All of this with the need for a a good body shape to advance on the field.
We adapt a rondo in order to practice the use of the third man and the free man as a microstructure to advance in the game.
To be fast but not rushing! This is a provocation rule which will improve the decision making in order to adapt the pace and the game speed.
