Monday cont. KICK-OFF -10 minutes 5 minutes – Shield Drill – tell your kids this day whether you will escape kickside or buttside this week. Rep it. PRACTICE FAST – REPS, REPS, REPS
BUTT AND PRESS DRILL (5 MIN) THE KEY HERE IS GETTING AS MANY REPS AS POSSIBLE. YOU WILL HAVE INJURIES AND HAVE TO RUN KIDS IN HERE. WE TRY AND WORK OUR JV KO TEAM IN HERE AT TIMES AND HOPE TO GROOM GUYS TO STEP INTO SPOTS AS THE SEASON GOES ON AND FRONTLINE GUYS ARE BANGED UP.
Always have a plan to work your kickers and keep them accountable. Do not leave their routine to chance or to what they feel like doing Make sure they simulate every situation they could find themselves in Friday night. A game winning FG, a punt out of the back of the end zone, a horrible snap, chaos around them, should all have been repped during the week.
