Football Coaching – Formations and Positions

This [tag]football coaching[/tag] drill relates to young players (1st and 2nd year).

To teach them the formations, hole numbers, and position numbers I line up cones as a representation of each [tag]football[/tag] player in the formation. Then I explain the formation, the positions and their numbers as well as the hole numbers. Next, realign the cones for each formation in the offense and repeat.

Each day for the first week or so, we will take 5-10 minutes of [tag]football practice[/tag] and review each formation, the position numbers, hole numbers, and what each position does for a number of plays.

I place special emphasis on who is on the line of scrimmage and who is not. Because it can be interactive and visual, it is a very effective teaching method.

    Brendan Rodgers believes fatigue is responsible for Raheem Sterling’s dip in form – but says the Liverpool FC teenager should be proud of what he has achieved during his breakthrough season.
