Pushup & Catch Drill
To work on concentration and conditioning while catching the ball
- Have the players form a line, single file. The first player in line will stand a couple yards in front, lying face down on the ground. The coach or passer will be 4-5 yards in front of the line, with a football in hand.
1. On the coach’s signal, the first player in line will perform a push up to get up onto his feet, then sprint forward.
2. The passer will lead the player with a pass, forcing him to get up, get going, and get the ball very quickly.
