What's the one drill you feel you can't live without?

I semi sorta get the idea, just that I think it almost becomes really a product of are you the HC, OC, DC, or a position coach?

The DC may want team pursuit as the drill he can't live without, while the DB coach votes for Spot Drill, the LB's coach votes for a Shed Drill, & the DL coach wants his 2on1 Drill.

The OC wants team Run, the Oline Coach wants first step, the RB Coach wants the Gauntlet, the WR Coach wants 7on7.

Explained like this, the results could be extremely helpful.

The greatest accomplishment is not in never failing, but in rising again after you fail.

IMHO this is the reason for EDD's, I know I have to have my EDD's before any position group can function in a team setting. The EDD's will always change according to what Scheme's you are running, but they are something you need on a daily basis. Next comes the conviction to run your EDD's from day 1 until your last practice.

My intent was to find out the one drill a coach feels he can't do without and not to suggest that there would possibly be a situation where you were constrained to just one drill.

Okay. That makes much more sense.

Tough to answer for our team. We do a lot of team and teach as we go. If we see a need, we'll indy's or group drills to shore up a weak area. Having said that, we'll be going heavier on indy's/position/group when we pick up our 2nd graders. I'll be flying by the seat of my pants when that happens.

One drill we couldn't do without? Probably our angle tackling drill. Mahonz calls it Tee Time, but it's different than DP's Tee Time.

When in doot . . . glass and oot.

So much of answering this depends on what you are doing as a team. A UBSW doesn't need to worry about rides & reads. A flexbone team doesn't worry about combo blocks as much as true doubles. A read & react defensive team needs to focus on the reads. A read on the run team needs to work on running to the ball. The list is endless, it really will depend on the type team you are.

Yes, but I would use Jack's Enduro regardless of what scheme we used.  I think there are some universal drills that we would take with us, wherever we went, regardless of scheme.

I get that, there are some that are universal. There are others that simply don't fit certain teams. IMHO there are so many drills, the important thing is to run the drills that the team you are coaching needs.

Agree.  I think the OP was asking what drill's you'd use, regardless of scheme.  When I coached youth ball, I'd use Whose Ball, Tee Time, The Gauntlet, etc. regardless of scheme.  In high school, I've shelved Tee Time completely, Whose Ball mostly, and Gauntlet somewhat.  Jack's Enduro has stayed through the test of time (and scheme).

In coaching youth we always did Miami Tackling circuit, Stance & Starts(positional), Team Pursuit, & Signal Drills. We used those regardless of scheme.

Joe, where can we find that?

I call it that because I got it from Randy Shannon when he was the DC for the U. It is a 3 tiered drill, starting on the Player's knee's, then progressing to an Angle Tackle, lastly to an Angle tackle with a strip.

Jack’s Enduro (“Circle of Death”).  The best conditioning/toughness/team-building drill there is.

I detest drills where players are standing around. This is one of my issues how we practice here. I understand it is a numbers thing, but it still drives me insane.

In Youth we were in constant motion, we practiced at a frantic yet controlled pace. This is why we loved the Miami Tackling circuit. We had 3 groups moving constantly. There was no standing around, instead it was constant movement & teaching. Same with Stances & Starts. Many coaches feel that is only needed early in the season. IMHO it was important we did it every day.

I actually did basically this exact 3-tier drill once a week this season.

When we were at MH we did it everyday, by the second week it took less than 10 minutes. I would be frustrated early because it took so long the first few days.

Dynamic Warmup, Miami Tackling, & Team pursuit were our first 18 minutes of practice everyday. I always wanted us in motion. I really pushed my coaches to coach during this period fast & effective.
