Description of Drill-Execution

Two full teams set up anywhere on a full field. Coach throws out the ball to any part of the field. Player who gets the ball has to move it up-field within 5 seconds. If the ball slows down for more than 5 seconds, coach blows the whistle and throws out another ball to a different part of the field. Try to make spectacular full field transition plays. Have your team look for the following:

  • Pushing the ball up the field offensively
  • Moving off the ball in a full field situation
  • Keeping eyes up looking for up-field opportunities
  • Also forces the defense to get back on defense and communicate
  • Long passes are encouraged
