Combo Blocks and RB paths
« on: December 13, 2013, 10:49:40 AM »
I get the man concept if you are covered and if you are uncovered double play side.  I am assuming with 9 year old kids teaching the double and working to the next level off the combo would be the most diffcult thing for the kids to teach in zone?  That and getting young kids to read the down linemen?

You don't double just bc your un covered...big mis conception...

You more or less check the reaction of the downlineman playside and based on his action you...combo...check...slip...climb

I had a 9 year old rb playing in a div of 10/11... its all about how you teach it...learn it and create a progression of consistent information

Their reaction time is always the biggie so you have to drill the heck out of them....and rep the what ifs.

NOT HARD AT ALL IF YOU REP THE HELL OUT OF IT.

We did it with kids as YOUNG as 8.

On Dum-Coach look under "OFFENSIVE SCHEMES".  Then click on PRO-STYLE OFFENSE.  Pull up threads on INSIDE ZONE CLINIC & OUTSIDE ZONE CLINIC.

Everything you need to know to TEACH it (& answer ALL the questions you posed on combo blocks & RB paths)  ARE SPELLED OUT THERE!
