They are recessed but its something I have to harp on every practice. They want to suck up closer to the center. No matter how much we tell them they just start inching forward.

Get that spray stuff they used in the World Cup.   Cross it and you sit.

Our tackles got warned for being too deep on maybe play 2 of our scrimmage this past Saturday.   We've never even told them to get that deep.   They just naturally fall into it.

I don't watch soccer so no clue what the stuff is ur talking about.

I would rather b warned about being to deep. What we end up getting is a curved line. TE ends up behind the tackle but twisted....it looks horrible and really frustrates me.

It's essentially high power shaving foam.  Temporarily marks grass, disappears after a few mins... the official stuff's pretty pricey though

That's a cheap shot.   I read about it.

Looks like foam shaving cream? I have the field paint That washes away eventually that may work.

I'm still shocked Michael is up to date on the happenings of soccer.

Rick Trickett said he wants his guards and tackles doing all their one-on-one drills properly recessed, and I think he said the distance he wants is 31" off the LOS, so he said he has lines that are 31" apart all over the practice field.

Line looked good yesterday as far as alignment. I broke it down again as to why and explained their alignment is part of there reason they are getting beat. Im gonna spray the field here and there too.

We have all our plays in except one PA pass. So from here on out its rep'ing it all to death.

I used the field paint to draw one long line and instructed the center to place his feet on the line while the rest of the OL was instructed to get their feet in such a position that their down hand was on that line. It gets them recessed so they're just legal. We got warned in our scrimmage this past weekend that one side was getting too deep. Never got flagged for it though.
^..^ 

Don't cross my path.

That's how it's supposed to work.   Doesn't always work out that way, though.

Can you add me as a coach?  Or create a generic coaches account that you can share with those on site?
