– 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.
– 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.
– As in this video, when doing a drill to work on a given skill, I rebuild the skill in the new drill context. This has proven much more effective in building good habits and improving the learning curve. I’ll have some more advice on moving skills to gameplay coming up in the future.
