How many coverage schemes do most teach? We are basing out of a Cover 0/1 scheme and with the number of passes we see through out the regular season, it is probably plenty. But if we make the play-offs especially our championship, I'm thinking we might need an alternative. Two teams in the other division pass more frequently. Cover 1 would probably be an easier teach with the man under coverage, but now I have players covering different recievers than they are used to. So I'm thinking a pure zone such as Cover 3 would be a better alternative for the kids to remember.  This is assuming the time is alloted to teach it. Or would it be better to ride the season out and just make sure our man coverage is coached up and have an alternative prepared for next season?

Thoughts? Suggestions? Advice? Its all appreciated.

Cover 3 and 4

Quite easy actually I don't normally do that. Basically my adjustments are safety based so nothing changes really for the corners or lbs.  Safeties are my best guys on defense.

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.

We use cover 2, 3 & man.  Just depends on the allignemnt of the offense.  We call out what coverage were in every play.  So when we BEAR front, we yell BEAR 3, BEAR 3.  Or BASE 2, BASE 2.

It's all about having fun.  But losing aint fun!

In YOUTH ball I would teach EITHER Man (preferably), or ZONE (but not both).

It is hard ENOUGH (on the large High School Level) for kids to REMEMBER IN THE HEAT OF BATTLE:
1.  Am I in MAN (I should not lose SIGHT of the "man")?
2.  Am I in ZONE (I must not lose sight of the ball)?

I stand behind the scouting team & study the EYES of the DB's, & it is EASY for them to get confused (even the BETTER athletes, with the FINE Secondary Coach - Bob Dance -  we had).

in youth ball im never going to teach man again.

you have 11 defenders...the last thing i want is my guys watching someone who doesnt have the ball. plus with all of the MPP rules / decoy recievers (OL who are out there for plays..) its just not worth losing the focus of a player on the field.

we start with cover 3. (Sabans Rip/Liz which is stupidly simple) then we teach a 2 robber scheme.

We taught zone early this year as pattern reading. Now we are in pure man. With the ability of quarters coverage pretty cool.

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.

CHOICES (YOU pick):

1) The defensive FRONT:

A) EVEN (uncovered Center)
B) OKIE (Center covered and both Guards are uncovered)
C) OVER (uncovered Guard away from strength)
D) UNDER (uncovered Guard to the side of strength)
E) SOLID (Center and both Guards are covered)

2) The defensive Secondary:

A) Cover 0 (M/M with NO F/S)
B) Cover 1 (M/M with F/S)
C) Cover 2 (2 deep zone/5 under zone)
D) Cover 2/MAN (2 deep zone/5 under man)
E) Cover 3 (3 deep zone/4 under zone)
F) Cover 4 (4 Deep Quarters Zone)

We run cover 2 and 3. Our cover 3 can go to 1/4, 1/4, 1/2 depending on the offense.

Thanks for the input fellas.  As our practice schedule stands now, I am only sticking with teaching one coverage scheme, for sure. We would have to take time away from tackling drills and we aren't good enough at that yet either. We'll stick with our M/M scheme and get as good at it as we possibly can. We are adding Loose man in addition to our Bump and Run. This is my first year running M/M but I know we have the athletes to make up for my ability to teach it. Though, It has been tough breaking them of first looking at the qb and not getting a good bump and read on their man first.

TWO!  One for "normal" situations in your BASE package (COVER 3/ZONE,  OR,  COVER 1/MAN-FREE), & one for MAX/BLITZ (COVER 0).

ATTACHED is "Cover 0" in the Wide Tackle 6 (there are 24 DIFFERENT TYPES of "FORMATION FAMILIES" - I have it drawn vs. TW0 (won't have TIME TO DRAW IT VS. THE other 22)!
