One of the youth football coaching drills we run for our 95 pounder squad is a variation of a school yard game. This teaches angle of pursuit, proper tackling, agility for the runners.
These football practice drills are for tackling and another for fumble recovery. Your younger players enjoy the tackling drill because of the contact and it is safe because they are hitting dummies.
I have formulated some new football training drills. This drill for the receivers is for our individual period. What it encompasses is the routes that we run most frequently–our bead and butter. These are the ones we want to run with our closed and be perfect at at. I call it “Cumulative Route Running Drill” or CRD for short.
These are line backer football drills which I have used in several practices. The first one is a position vs. position drill which works with wide receiver vs. defensive back and running back vs linebacker. The other is for hand eye/reaction.
