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

Hex Blocking Drill Video Youth Football Drills

I just found this HEX Blocking youth football drills on You Tube from Coach Erik Saunders and I like it.  I would probably make HEX a little smaller so the players are closer but I like this a lot.  I will be adding this blocking youth football drill to my practice drills this Spring.

Spin Offense Spin Back QB Footwork

I found a video on youtube of a single wing spinner series of footwork for the spinner back.  The footwork in the video is very similar to what we use for our QBs in the Spin.  We take a shorter first step toward the line. 

We rep the plays on air at least 30 minutes each practice, more time earlier in the season.  The timing is critical to the success of the exchanges from QB to running backs.
