"p.o.p" blocking
« on: January 15, 2012, 07:30:15 PM »
So i was reading some blocking rules in an old I playbook. A freind if mine wants to use it and it was basically inside  outside double team playside. Holy smokes thats a bit to remember so after a while i thought of covering the gap playside first, then the on. After that i. tried to think of a word to use to double with the playside partner. So i dumbed it down to "pop" playside gap, on, partner playside. Then i. got to thinking that sounds a lot like covered/ uncovered zone scheme. Do you think this would be easier or more complicated for the youths?

Ok for the record I run the I and don't double team at all.  Iam I right? Maybe not Tenopir book outlines Zone Blocking for the I yet I averaged 7 yards a carry.  Z it all depends on what you have up front. If they can learn Z one fine, if they cant you need to teach them another way to block successfully.   ;)

I'm not sure what you're asking.  If you're asking whether the abbr. or mnemonic you use would make any difference, I highly doubt it.  Once you rep it, they're going to use their own memory processes to remember the check-down sequence as to where to look.

If you're asking whether the 3 priorities you lay out are any different in difficulty to remember than what you saw in the book, I don't see it as either harder or easier.

Or are you asking something else?

Just tell the kids what you're trying to do, and then let them name it.

We would call that a "GOO" block, ala Coach Cisars Book. Gap On Outside, I think thats summing up the same rule? Seems very easy for any kid to remember.
