7 on 7 Youth Passing

7 on 7 Youth Passing

Leveraging the Spacing Concept

 

Recently we received the following addition from a very close coaching friend of ours to our 7 on 7 Youth Passing Playbook.

The coach’s reasoning to add this was to take advantage of the skill set of his #6 receiver.  Though it may be hard to tell from the diagram, the #3’s route is more of a Sit Route where he is instructed to attack inside the Linebacker finding space over the ball and “getting big in the paint”.  As our coaching friend pointed out, this would be more of a Zone concept and when we draw it up against a Cover-2 Zone defense we like the possibilities that it provides.

We like that it puts the right Cornerback in conflict where either #6 or #2 should be open.  We also like the fact that the #5 will likely occupy the left Cornerback freeing up the #4 on Whip Route.

Though not exactly the same, below is a video that we believe gives you a good idea of what it would look like on the Trips/Bunch side of the formation:

If you are interested in seeing some of our favorite 7 on 7 plays, as well as get a preview of our 7 on 7 Playbook, we suggest that you take a look at our 7 on 7 Youth Passing Playbook post we made a while back.

(The Best Spread Run/RPO Concepts)

 

All-22 - Part 1In this eBook, Coach Mike Rowe and Coach Slade Singleton look at the most talked-about run concepts and RPOs plays that have been executed out of the spread offense.

The book covers a collection of 50 plays using 40 videos explaining the whys and hows these plays have been most successful.  This is not a playbook, but an answer book.  The diagrams and the video are perfectly illustrated to include multiple fronts, coverages and formations.  Below is a sample preview, as well as what Coaches are saying after reading the book:

What Coaches Are Saying

 

Coach Rowe and Singleton have knocked it out of the park again. This book has me reevaluating my playbook. I’m getting rid of some old plays to make room for a couple of these amazing plays. I can’t wait to run the “Ice” concept and the “Tre RPO”. This eBook is going to make offensive coordinators happy and defensive coordinators angry.

Ron McKie – Crestwood High School, SC

Another great resource from Mike Rowe and Slade Singleton. If you are looking for a great resource on the spread run game and RPOs, or you have to defend these concepts this is a great book to pick up. It is a quick read and the video links really add depth to it.

Teaching Stalk Blocking in Youth Football

Teaching Stalk Blocking in Youth Football

(Running Backs and Receivers)

 

Recently Coach Mike Rowe shared the video below with us outlining a nice teaching progression on how to teach Receivers how to block.  This video does a nice job of demonstrating a number of drills and coaching points that can be applied to the youth game.  As a new youth football coach, one of the the skills that I struggled with was teaching my Running Backs and Receivers how to block in space.  It’s a skill that I believe is difficult for young athletes, but one with lots of repetition can be learned.

 

 

Diamond DrillOne of our go to drills over the past several years to teach this skill has been the Diamond Drill that we orginally learned from Coach Dave Cisar at Winning Youth Football that we have since modified a bit for our purposes.

On the whistle, the Defender must run around the designated point of the diamond trying to get to the center of the diamond to try and touch the football.  The Blocker (offense) runs around the designated opposite (shorter) side of the diamond attacking the defender and keeping them from touching the football for 5 seconds.

Key Coaching Points:

  • Blocker needs to run his feet keeping a low center of gravity with his head up and helmet below the Defender’s chin. No Lunging!
  • Defender can use any type of move they want after rounding the designated cone, but should not be allowed to dive at the football.
  • Depending on the age group you are coaching you may have to play around a bit with the dimensions of the Diamond.

If interested in other drills for your backs and receivers, we suggest you take a look at another article we published covering Youth Football Drills for Running Backs and Receivers.  This not only contains another Stalk Blocking Drill, but has links to other valuable drill material as well.

“This Air Raid video by Coach Singleton is great. He goes over his offense in incredible detail. I have picked up some passes, runs, and RPO tags I’m going to install in the upcoming season. Great work coach, and can’t wait to see what you release next.”

“This course is a must buy for any Airraid enthusiast. Whether you are a seasoned coach or just starting your coaching journey there is something that everyone can take away from here. Coach is very clear on what each play is trying to do and where the read man is. It does a good job of breaking the Airraid down to the core plays and showing you how to work out after that.

Rule of 4

Rule of 4

 

Rule of 4We just published a new Course on CoachTube from Coach Slade Singleton called the “Rule of 4“.  In this course Coach Singleton will describe a simple offensive system he has used successfully at the High School level.  Using this system he has simplified the learning curve for his players helping them to execute at a fast pace.  Here is what some coaches are saying about the course:

“What Coach Singleton has done with his “Rule of 4”, can help any coach improve their offensive output. This is a great way to streamline your offense and tailor your offense around what your team can be successful with. With any no huddle tempo offense you want the ability to have your players play fast but also be able to window dress what you do. The “Rule of 4”, is a tool that can make this happen. The detail that is being spoke on in this course is worth every penny and I will incorporate the “Rule of 4″ into my system moving forward. Thank you coach for putting together a great product!”

“Coaches, this is a MUST!!! It’s simple and concise. Installing your offense doesn’t have to be complicated. Your kids, your offense and your program will benefit from this course.”

“Coach Singleton does a great job explaining the hows & whys of his system. Clear and concise. Best $ I have spent on football in a long time. Keep up the good work Coach!”

“Coach Singleton has done it again. He has created a course that simplifies your offense while increasing your points. This course shows you how you don’t need 1,000 plays in order to be successful. All you need is a couple of plays that you need to rep and your scoring will go through the roof. This is an amazing course that I think everyone should get.”

“Love how Coach Singleton made all concepts simple to understand. Whether you have coached for 1 or 10 years it is easy to follow. Keep up the great work Coach!”

“Coach Singleton does a great job of simplifying spread concepts. His rule of 4 is helpful in trying to simplify your offense for your kids in order to play faster, but also gives you answers to what the defense is trying to do. I would recommend any coach looking to simplify their offense in order to play faster check out this course. Nice work Coach!”

“Solid Video, Worth the buy!!!”
