Join the NCAA's all-time winningest coach, Dave Brandt, as he leads you through a build-up of drills for your practices to help your players translate drill mechanics to game play. Demanding specific technical requirements of his players in each drill, Brandt shows you how to build your players' skills to the maximum. Starting with the basic "Dutch Diamond," Brandt has players work the ball around the diamond using two touches, one touch, cut backs and step over turns to reverse the ball and splits. Brandt then stretches the diamond out for his "Breaking the Line" drill where players have to receive a pass and take the ball across their body before passing off to the next location. Next, Brandt has his players work the ball around in the basic "W" pattern. He describes six different options than can be incorporated into this "W" formation including backside passes or opposite players and the give and go. Brandt includes a 5 v. 4 scrimmage game where the team works on translating the options they worked on without the defense present. Brandt has proven that these drills are effective for producing maximum results from your players.
