Many coaches struggle with new ideas for drills for youth flag football. Here is one suggestion that works well. Keep em coming!
I currently coach 5-7 yr old flag football. One of the big problems I have found is that they rarely take good angles to the ball carrier. I use this football drill at the end of every practice and it helps the kids in learning the proper angle to take while also conditioning them.
I hold two footballs. I throw one to the other end of the field. Each child has to chase the football and actually touch it. After they touch it I will run as if I am returning a kick in their direction, cutting, joking etc. Each child must touch the ball carrier in order for the practice to end. This teaches them how to take good angles.
It’s another excellent conditioning drill and it also teaches them to never give up on a play. Hope this helps!!
