Youth Flag Football Drills - Simple Passing Tree Drill

Coaching Youth Fooball - Football Plays

Purpose: Simple passing tree to teach your receivers various route running skills.
Procedure:

The passing tree system is designed so that all even-numbered routes (2,4,6,8) are run towards the middle of the field and all odd-numbered routes (1,3,5,7,9) are be run towards the sideline. These routes are used for all positions on the field. Since the ball is always placed in the middle of the field, the center faces the dilemma, and all of the centerís routes should be based on the play design.

Quick Out (1):

This is a 5-8 yard route then the receiver cuts out towards the sideline then looks for the ball.
Slant (2): This is a 3-5 yard route forward then the receiver breaks towards the middle of the filed on a 45 degree angle and looks for the ball.
Deep Out (3): This is a 10-15 yard route. It should be run exactly like the quick out only deeper.
Drag/In (4): This is a 5-8 yard route forward then the receiver breaks into the middle of the filed on a 90 degree angle and looks for the ball.
Flag (5): This is a 10-15 yard route forward then the receiver breaks at a 45 degree angle towards the sideline and looks for the ball.
Curl (6): This is a 5-8 yard route forward then the receiver stops and turns to the ball.
Post Corner (7): This is a 12-20 yard route forward then the receiver cuts on a 45 degree angle to the middle of the field for a few steps then the receiver cuts on a 45 degree angle towards the sideline and then looks for the ball.
Post (8): This is a 12-20 yard route forward then the receiver breaks on a 45 degree angle towards the middle of the field and looks for the ball.
Fly (9): This route is run straight up the field with the receiver looking for the ball after he gets past about 15 yards.
