The main objective of this exercise is the technical development of the players to make the ball distribution effective, through a 5 + 1 v 4 rondo.
The pentagon structure helps the players to be positioned on different passing lines (on the cones as vertexes of the structure), alternating horizontal, diagonal and vertical passes (moreover about the player in the middle).
After a first “waiting phase“, when the ball must move among the 4 players along the lower part of the shape, the possession phase must be performed as fast as possible, to try to pass to the teammate in the middle, who is outnumbered and who must receive and play vertically as quickly as possible.
Freeing from the marker and receiving between the lines are so important then.
The sequence always starts from the 4 players on the lower cones of the “pentagon”
