Youth Football Special Teams – Coaching Clinic

Here is another episode, Special Teams, in my Youth Football Coaching Clinic Series that I developed for KYA Football.

 

Kick Off – Onside Kicks most popular

  • Deep kicks allow for long returns dangerous unless practiced
  • Directional Kicks to sidelines – hit number sideline #40 or #30 marked on field
  • Kick to your sidelines majority of time
  • Kick to a MPP or big lineman with no hands
  • Find a soccer player on your team to try out for kicker
  • Practice kicks 20 reps before practice 10 to 15 yard kicks to 2nd line – right and left

Kick Return – Hands and Speed Squad

  • Hands team
  • Do not hide MPPs here
  • Trap Return blocking
  • Assign players to block – we number them
  • Watch film and find out where they kick

Punt – only within your 10 or 20

  • Use 4 downs for a first instead of punting
  • Most dangerous play in youth football
  • Too many variables – snap, kick, return coverage, open field tackles
  • We tend to fake punt more
  • Rugby Style Punt – Sweep then punt down sideline

Punt Return – Very Dangerous

  • Punt block
  • If return, best hands person and only if ball drops in his hands
  • If they have good punter drop two hands players back to field the ball and let them block for each other
  • No one on punt return touch the punted ball but your hands guy and only if the ball drops right to him for an easy catch.

PAT Kicks / Field Goals

  • too little time unless you have a great Kicker Snapper and Holder
