Set up cones indicating two lines that are 10 yards apart. Players will spread out on the first line facing away from the second line. You can stack players for a second line.
On the coach’s command, players will backpedal to the second line. Start slow and work up to full speed after a few reps. The goal is to backpedal almost as fast as a receiver runs forward.
KEY FOCUS POINTS
- Players should stay low. Keep hips low with shoulders over feet.
- Arms should pump like they’re running forward.
- Push off the balls of your feet with knees bent. Head up.
