Starting off Practice Day #1

It is essential that the offensive portion of practices Day 1 focus on fundamentals. At Nation Ford we break our practice into the following units:

Fundamental period
Screen Period
Run Period
Flex period (Share Offensive and Defensive players)
Routes on Air
7 on 7
Tempo (Team No-Huddle Time)
Special teams

This breakdown allows us to get everything practiced in an orderly manner. We assign roughly 15-20 minutes per period and coach on the fly. This type of structure focuses on tempo and getting the kids in shape while also covering the most ground each and every day of practice.
