Defensive Communication Between Players

1 post in this topic

Looking for what you have your players communicate while on defense between each other when running a zone defense.

Obviously there is: "pass pass pass" on pass plays

"run run run" on running plays

"ball ball ball" when its a pass play and the ball is in there air.

(I personally prefer saying it 3 times quick vs an elongated "pppaaaaaaaaaass")

Perhaps they even yell out "reverse" when there is a reverse (although this is probably coming from the coaches).

Do you have kids yell out anything when offensive players have traveled through their zone and they aren't following them? (seems valuable from re-enforcing what you want that player to do more so than the other player hearing that someone is passing into their zone).

Anything else you use to help your defenses communicate?
