Football practice takes planning. Coach Wright begins with the basics, explaining how each practice is organized to ensure the coaches and players stay focused in order to make the most of practice time.
Schedule your football practice so that players get the time to work on the fundamentals essential to building a successful defensive line.
How can you maximize your coaching resources to cover those defensive line drills without skipping the fundamentals? The coaching staff has to be on the ball! Keep your practice moving and see results on game day.
Offense and defensive have gone their separate ways. Now it's time to meet on the field for some one on one practice. From PUP drills to goal line skills, scheduling some real action into your practice gives your team an edge at game time.
Fundamentals, collision drills, options and screens - there's time to cover it all if you organize your football practice. Give your athletes the benefit of a structured practice so that every player gets his time on the field.
Putting the team through scripted plays provides an opportunity for repetition and correction. Practice those plays you expect your opponents to run so your players are physically and mentally ready to meet the challenge of real play.
Plan your football practice to help your players improve, not to wear them out! Here are some tips for setting practice timeframes so your coaching staff and players get the most out of each workout.
