To get players loose while working on acceleration and running technique.
- Have the players line up and spread out on the goal line.
- On the coach’s signal, the players will begin running for the 40 yard line.
- Players will begin at about 70%, slowly building up their speed and intensity, until they are going full speed for the last 10 yards.
- Make it clear to players that this drill is not a race. The focus is on warming up and running with control and pace.
