Youth Flag Football Drills - Running Back Cut Drill

Coaching Youth Fooball - Football Plays

Purpose: Great drill to work on running back cutting and change of direction skills. Great for conditioning.

Set up cones a line of 6 to 8 cones 8 yards apart. Set up multiple lines of cones depending on the number of players you have. This is run as a relay race to keep it moving fast.

The first player in each line will run around each cone and then come back around each cone to the beginning of his or her line. They will then hand off the ball to the next player in line and return to the back of the line.

Key points - make sure running backs switch the football to the arm nearest the sideline. Players should cut on the outside foot and make sure they don't cross legs when changing direction.

Progression - Have players backpedal through cones.
