To get players loose and comfortable catching the ball on the move.

Drill Setup

  • Have the players separate and form two lines about 5 yards apart, facing each other at the goal line, one with footballs, and one without.

Side to Side Football Wide Receiver Drill

How it Works

  1. The first two players in each line will shuffle sideways while passing the ball back and forth, running the length of the field.
  2. Once the players in front of them have reached the 20 yard line, the next pair will take off.

Coaching Tips

  • You can have players carioca instead of a side shuffle to add an extra layer of difficulty.
  • Every time a player drops the ball, they must go to the back of the line and restart from the beginnin.
  • You can also throw in an extra 5 push up penalty for drops!
