instalation time table
« on: May 01, 2011, 08:20:16 PM »
What is the typical time table to install this defense. No stunts/blitzes just the base? Would someone be able to share there installation schedual for this defense?

Thanks in advance!

I'll go back and compile from our old practice plans and post later this week.  Generally speeking we teach poistion fundamentals during individual periods each defensive day (we alternate offense and defense of different days).   We teach tackling via a team circuit.  The install of the base scheme and adjustments is done over three to four hours over three to four days (we split offense and defensive days).

Me too. I'm running Spring practice now with my MS team and would be interested. I plan on just putting in the base defense, keys, responsibilities, and pursuit angles going over alignment, strong vs. weak call, against a max of two offensive formations.

Sorry this has been delayed.  Real job and spring football ate up my whole May!

Read the checklist file (install plan.docx) first which outlines how we break down our position groups and defensive units and how we use individual, group and team periods to install the skills and scheme.   The install template (Split 4-4 Install templae.xls) is a generic approach to how we have installed/introduced the base package during our summer practices.  We allocate approx. 35% of our practice time to defense and in the preseason that's approx. 7 hours.  The install template covers approx. 4 of scheme install. The remainder is used to rep the base scheme, tackling circuits, and install goal line, any additional fronts, and punt return.

Happy to answer any detail questions on drills, approach, etc.

JR, as always thanks for your time and documentation.  I have read through it and am curious what your "7 Spokes" pursuit drill is.  Can you describe it?

It's our pursuit drill with the secondary and linebacker groups.  Tackles are included in the set-up to help give secondary run/pass reads.  Emphasis is on formation recognition, strength calls, run/pass read, run fits, pursuit angles, etc.   It helps them see how the coverage reacts to the run game in addition to formation adjustments.   It's basically 7 on 7 for the run game.  Pass is mixed in to keep them honest on the reads.
