Double Responsibility 4x4v1:

In this drill, you will be able to work on several important aspects of soccer. Firstly, you will be able to work on passing, since the four squares are four smaller rondos. Then, you will be able to work on the awareness of your players, for them to decide quickly and in the best interest of their team. As players can be concerned by two different squares, it will be their task to decide where they want to be present. Good, fun and intense drill to work on passing, awareness, quality and even fitness when doing this exercise at max intensity.
