Beast Formation Ideas - Zone Lite; Triple Team blocks

I've been watching a lot of zone clinics lately, and I'm thinking that a sort of lite version of zone might work out really well with the beast formation at the youth level. 

The rules would be:

1) determine if you're covered or uncovered. 

2A) If you're covered, zone step and square up on the player covering you.

2B) If you're uncovered look to chip backside and then immediately climb

The same uncovered rules apply to all of the backs as well. 

I feel like this would be an interesting change up for the power play.

Triple team 

I'm sure a lot of people probably do this one, but instead of running to the natural bubbles in the defense, you could also just run your backs into the middle of the double teams. This will created a triple team. I don't expect this play to create very good holes, but I do expect this play to gain at least a few yards. 

Say you had a 53 look with stacked backers.

.....x....x....x

x...x.....x...x...x

...o.o.0.o.o.o.o

............o.o.o

Nose is in zero. Tackles are in a 4 tech. The line would GOOD block. So the RG and RT form a double team. The inside backer joins in. The extra tackle takes on the 4 tech, and both right and middle backer can create a triple team; they can even form a 3 man wedge block if they want.

The number one issue at the youth level with zone schemes is the level of talent across your blocking surface needs to be fairly equal. Plus you really need 5 guys to play the same positions all season long. 

I found that to be a tough nut to maintain. 

Still....if the Back times up right....zone will work with any Offense. 👍

I plan to run mcrea "wedge" zone scheme with this offense probably this fall.  Rumors of me taking an unwanted JV team are circulating.  Might have to make some dad coaches upset in 2021 haha

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

On the contrary, those do create very good holes, if your runners know how to see, trust, and wait for them.

Is that when the blocking surface zone blocks to the called hole? 

If so that was our blocking rules the first Spring Season we ran mega splits. I liked it.

There's aiming points not holes in this.

 

So.

 

-------1--2--3---c--4--5--6--7 

If we want to run off  "6" in this case. 6 is the point and goes forward to first threat. 1-5 reach steps getting first threat toward 6 and 7 reaches toward 6 getting first threat. End man is left for the backs let's say on "blast"   

With the blocks looking like this:

----------------------------567

-------1--2--3---c--4-- 

 

Just and idea I had, needs some ironing but outside of blast there may be some spinner incorporated to aid the blocking 

 

Thoughts? @ mahonz
