– Ensuring the incentives in your drill are correctly set will help your players develop faster and help them transition their skills onto the field quicker.

– Here is the breakmark drill as referenced in the video (thanks to for all their work). The concept should be applicable to other breakmark drills.

– You can obviously vary this drill to your players’ needs. You can allow high releases, run it in different wind directions, require markers to mark close or practice stepping off; change the cut distance, etc.
