So today I’m going to share a few drills for front layouts. I have shared a few before both here and here. But here are a few more ideas. People have A LOT of different philosophies about front layouts. It’s probably one of the skills I run into the most differentiation between coaches on. Where the arms go etc.
This first drill is GREAT for working with the shapes of the front layout, it helps get rid of that pike whip thing a lot of us see. Secondly, it gets some of the fear out of the way that helps kids focus on other things.
This second drill is actually one I haven’t used before. I have used the variation of it where kids do tic tocks with their hands (ie. bhs, fhs, bhs etc). But I had never really thought about trying it without. It seems pretty effective. What do you guys think?
What are your favorite drills for front layouts?
Not to worry!
