Youth Football Quarterback Drills To Improve Your Passing Techniques

am a former NFL Quarterback, and I have some great quarterback training drills to talk about today. These youth qb drills will help improve mobility, ball security and their response to various situations that come up in the course of a game.

Drill #1. Globetrotter

This is an excellent drill for ball security. Quarterbacks work the football in a circular motion around their head, under their arms, around their waist, around their knees, around each knee, weaving through their legs and finally “playing catch” between their legs.

The coach shout commands of which body part the ball revolves around–usually starting with the head and working downwards. Coaches also shout the command “reverse” which changes the direction the ball is rotating. This should be done numerous times.

The drill concludes with five ‘drops’–the quarterback dropping the ball and then grabbing it. This is done with five drops with the power hand and five drops with the off- hand.

Drill #2. Toss sweep and option drill

Set up a line of quarterbacks holding footballs with the coach in แทงบอลออนไลน์ the “Running/Pitch Back” position. The coach should be in a position behind and off to the side of the quarterback–where a running back would be receiving a toss sweep or an option pitch.

The quarterback faces away from the coach/running back in a position where he would be taking a snap from center. Quarterback reverses out and executes a toss sweep to the coach. (This simulates either a toss sweep or a quick pitch play.)

You then move to the other side until all have executed the pitch. Then the beginning quarterback again executes the pitch to the coach and all other quarterbacks follow till all have executed a pitch both to the right and to the left.

Now the quarterback executes an option pitch in the same manner. If the type of option your team runs has an inside or outside veer dive fake then this can be simulated in the drill by the quarterback. In the option phase of the drill the coach yells “pitch” and the quarterback breaks down and executes a pitch stepping towards the “pitch” man/coac
