Teaching your punt and kickoff coverage units the proper habits leads to critical special teams fundamentals. The Hard-Turn Drill reinforces all the key aspects of coverage that keep your players in their lanes and taking proper pursuit angles.
With the success of its Heads Up Tackling initiative, USA Football has introduced Heads Up Blocking. To ensure the safety and effectiveness of players when executing blocks, five fundamentals of proper blocking technique have been identified.
Two quarterbacks begin by starting at 10 yards apart and progress (in increments of 5 yards) to 30 yards apart. They throw the ball parallel or straight down a line to enable the coach to see what each ball does in flight.
Successful pass protection is a combination of balance and body control. Pass protection drills help each player gain control of his body and learn proper technique.
While this drill is as old as the hills, it involves a form of distraction for the wide receiver that every school has on its field: a goalpost.
Without question, the most important fundamental for any defensive position is tackling. It is vital that your athletes know what it takes to be a good tackler.
Football requires explosive bursts of speed, agility and quickness for a team to be successful. The Pro Agility Drill develops quick feet, explosive directional changes and reaction time.
Superior agility and quickness are clear discriminating factors among football players at all levels. These skills improve performance, decrease risk of injury, and improve evasiveness by allowing athletes to fake or neutralize an opponent.
