This is a great drill for both flag football and youth tackle football.
This drill works on developing good flag grabbing and tackling fundamentals
and will work on pursuing the ball carrier and making the tackle /
grabbing the Flag . This youth football drill can be used by players
of all ages and levels.
Have your youth football team form a circle. Start with one player
in the middle of the circle; this player will be the ball carrier.
Call out the name of another player; this player will be the defender.
The defender's goal is to corner the ball carrier and grab their flag
or make the tackle (depending on the level you are coaching). The
goal of the ball carrier is not to be caught. This a great drill for
defense as well as great drill for offense.
