Fox Chase Rabbit to Hole Drill – Pee Wee Football Drill

I’ve got another pee wee football drill that I thought we would get into today and this drill is the Fox Chase Rabbit to Hole Drill for running backs. This is a great drill to teach youth football running backs to hit the hole without stutter stepping and hit the hole quickly and not try to read the hole for very long otherwise they’re going to get tackled from behind.

In the drill, you set up a tackler to tackle the running back from behind running the football through a gauntlet drill, half line or full scrimmage.

Purpose:
To teach running backs to hit the hole hard and quick and not stutter step before hitting the hole.

Set Up:
Set up your favorite running back gauntlet drill or use one similar to below. Or you can use half line or full line in a scrimmage situation. Have a chase man (Fox) ready by a coach about 5 to 7 yards behind the ball carrier. Ball carrier or the Rabbit will run to hole and coach will release the Chaser or Fox to tag or tackle the Ball Carrier from behind. You can also have a second Fox chase the Rabbit ball carrier to the Ladder / Sidelines as an extra to the drill.

Coaching Points:

• Make sure to describe to your RBs how the drill works.
• Run the drill as a walk through tag before going live.
• Fox tackler should be smaller than ball carrier
• Fox should not tackle low but basically grab waist of ball carrier.
• Ball carrier should not slow down or stutter step at hole.
• We like ball carriers to cut once through the hole
• Adjust depth and speed of Fox with coach timing the release

Game Simulation Walk Thru Drill

Spice up your boring walk thrus with the Game Simulation Walk Thru Drill and keep your youth football players engaged.  Everyone does walk thrus on the practice before the game. I was doing them the same old way up until 2007 when I decided to spice it up a bit.  Why not make the walk thrus just like game day with coin toss, special teams, penalties, sideline action, and scoring?  The kids loved it.  They were more interested in running walk thrus if there was a purpose.

I call this drill, Game Simulation Walk Thru Drill.  We basically simulate game day even setting up on the home or visitor sideline.  We chose our Captains which makes it easy for the actual game day because they stay the same.  We do a coin toss and either kick off or run a kick return and then go to either offense or defense for play simulations.  Missed assignments or alignments are penalties and perfect plays equal yardage and points.

Check out the video below for more on one my my favorite youth football drills; the Game Simulation Walk Thru Drill.

This drill is great for younger 5, 6, 7 and 8 year old teams to get used to game day, especially early in the season.  It also is great for coaches to work out the kinks.  Weve found wrist coach errors and blocking call issues along with hand signal problems running the Game Simulation Drill.

Greyhound Team Pursuit Defensive Youth Football Drill

Coaching Youth Football Playbooks, Tips and more pee football talkThis is a free youth football coaching video on the Greyhound Team Pursuit Drill; a pee wee football drill by Coach Parker. Great drill to condition your players and also teach them proper pursuit angles when chasing a running back down the sidelines.

Your young football players get tired of running wind sprints at the end of practice, plus they say not to end practice with sprints since pretty much everyone I know hates wind sprints.  No one wants to go home hating football practice.  To hide the fact I am running wind sprints we use the Greyhound Team Pursuit Defensive Drill to spice up our conditioning at then end of practice and teach a very important football concept; pursuit angles.

Basically you set up a defense on the 20 yard line or so and have two runners or “rabbits” on each sideline that will act as the chase runners or “rabbits” running down the sideline for the pursuing defense.  A coach in the middle calls a cadence and snaps the ball to start the drill and will either throw the football left or right to one of the coaches standing by the sideline runners.  We want the defense to read the initial snap of the football and rush and then read the football flow to each side and then run the pursuit angle.  The defensive players do not tackle the “rabbit” but touch him as he runs down the sideline.  We are looking for defensive players to set up at the proper angles all the way down the sideline.

I hope you enjoy the drills.  Take a look at the video.
