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.

Joe,

Everyday would have been perfect.  Had we not had such a limited schedule, ridiculous amounts of field cancellations, and limited staff, I would have done it everyday.  There has been years where I did it once to open practice and once to close it out.

It's amazing how well the first two tiers improves tackling confidence with youth.  By the end of the year, the kid who was scared to hit (or be hit), was hitting anyone and everyone.  He said that this drill was the reason he was able to get over his fears and be confident that he could take down anyone with proper form and technique.

We had the same experience. Even our weaker players became tacklers by the seasons end.

I'm a sucker for Sumo.

Our buck sweep drill is cool, lot of moving parts. Wind up working on pretty much everything related to football except passing.

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

I'm going to answer the reworded Q in the same spirit as I did the original.  Any drill I could live w/o in any given practice session.  But if you're asking which drill I'd be most put out by if the league wanted to ban it, it'd be angle tackling.  I could be bothered by a ban on a lot of drills, but that one the most, because I think kids learn so much by it on both offense & defense that's important to the game.

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.

Im surprised no one has mentioned Team a their one drill.

Dinosaurs.  ;D
