Using Motion in Youth Football

Stream or Fly Motion: Full speed shallow movement for the most part by a wing, opening or flanker. Regularly this is very long and can be arrived behind schedule behind the quarterback in backhanded snap offenses or in front or behind a quarterback in direct snap (shotgun) offenses. In fly or fly movement the motioning back needs to run close enough to the quarterback to get an immediate handoff or phony handoff.

Circle or Rocket Motion: Similar to stream movement yet it is more profound, frequently 4-7 yards more profound than the quarterback. The movement back is in a situation to get a pitch or phony pitch from the quarterback frequently taking the pitch well to the playside of the planned play. This sort is frequently utilized in roundabout snap offenses (QB under focus) to get outside rapidly with profundity.

Wyatt Double Wing Motion: Out of the Double Wing Offense made mainstream by Hugh Wyatt, an exceptionally short purposeful movement not long before the snap.


This is regularly only three stages and used to set the wingback in a place to get a short throw from the quarterback simply behind a firmly adjusted fullback. This novel style is utilized to give the back some energy, set him in place to get a simple to get throw, set the guard up for counter and trap plays and square his shoulders to the line of scrimmage as he rushes to the off-tackle opening.

Reset movement: Nearly max throttle and utilized by a back to realign himself to an alternate piece of the field. Frequently utilized in different passing sets to separate great collectors on frail protective backs or to help free recipients from solid squeezing guarded backs.

Stream Motion: Slow and intentional and used to return the movement to a more essential position or to get the safeguard to stream a particular way. This movement is frequently no quicker than a sluggish run.

The keys to utilizing movement in youth football are take off rhythm, speed and tourist spots.

At the point when youth football plays are planned with movement you need to figure out what type, it ought to be founded on the thing you are attempting to achieve with it. Next it’s imperative to show when the motioning player will begin. We get unmistakable with this, if our rhythm is Shift, Down, Ready, Set, Go, we may tell our wingback on our spinner arrangement plays to begin his stream on the “S” of “Set”. This is a football play where we are utilizing stream to both set the movement man in a place to get a handoff just as to move linebackers streaming away from two potential ballcarriers on the play. The speed of this wingback is a lethargic conscious run on all spinner arrangement plays.

The movement man has two milestones on this play, the primary milestone is his endpoint, the point he will be at when he either gets a handoff or fakes getting a handoff, this pointing point decides his way. On the spinner plays, the motioning wingbacks milestone is the back impact point of the correct foot of our fullback. The stream monitors other milestone is the place where he will be at the “G” of go, where we snap the football. At the “G” of go we need the movement back to be directly behind the correct gatekeeper, obviously at the profundity that permits him to be at the impact points of the fullback. The second pointing point gives the motioning back a milestone that advises him in the event that he ought to stimulate or moderate up his movement.

As the vast majority of you know, the milestones should be organized such that ensures the motioning back is running in a way that never takes him toward the line of scrimmage before the snap, his movement way should consistently be corresponding to the line of scrimmage or away from it. Ordinarily in youth football match-ups you see a movement player push toward the line of scrimmage before the snap and the group gets hailed 5 yards for illicit movement.

Fly or fly movement is something we added for the current year and it was an enormous achievement. The max throttle fly permitted us to extend the field on a level plane and gave us a lot quicker hitting clear play just as gave us another alternative to run our base works out of.

The stream is the most troublesome movement I have instructed in youth football, this is the subsequent group I’ve had the option to utilize fly movement with. In the event that you don’t have a well executing group with great ballhandlers, this isn’t the arrangement of football plays or stream you need to utilize. This isn’t the response to the striving group that can’t execute their base plays, this is something a generally excellent or possibly well executing group adds to it’s stockpile to get them over the highest point of late season obstacles. The movement is any longer as the movement men are 7 to 14 yards from the end man on the line of scrimmage. The movement is at 100% max throttle, henceforth if the circumstance isn’t wonderful the movement man can overwhelm the lattice point of the handoff or the snap happens a long time before the movement man shows up and you lose the duplicity, early advantage, and timing that this movement should give you.

We start the movement of our fly movement backs on the “R” of prepared. Their milestone is the front foot nearest to the motioning back of our “Quarterback”. We need the movement man to be at the midpoint of the second hostile lineman to his side at the “G” of go, his subsequent milestone. This milestone is more extensive than our spinner arrangement in light of the fact that our snap is about a yard more profound, it takes the ball longer to get to the “Quarterback” and in light of the fact that the movement back is at max throttle he makes progress a lot quicker than when we run our spinner arrangement.

The stream sets aside a lot of effort to get the circumstance down well. That is the reason we don’t propose placing it in until your base “Sainted Six” plays are down consummately, perhaps it’s something you add in middle of the season for that harasser rival or late season finisher run. For some adolescent football crews, it’s something you don’t add by any stretch of the imagination, if your base football plays aren’t great, don’t waste time with it.

While repping the stream movement plays its vital that the rhythm stays steady. On the off chance that the rhythm is changed the circumstance will be off, it must be a similar without fail. You will likewise see that the differences in your movement players speed will lose the circumstance too. You should differ the distance the players are parted out to safeguard they are at their tourist spots at the correct occasions. The quicker players split out somewhat further, the more slow ones somewhat more tight. In the event that your movement man on the fly isn’t running at max throttle, the arrangement simply isn’t exceptionally powerful. You will see from our 2007 Season DVD that the main game we had the fly arrangement in we weren’t close to as powerful as we were later in the year when our players were 100% positive about going max throttle.

Something else to remember when running any plays moving; your motioning player must be gotten briefly before he goes rolling. Your rhythm needs to take into account him to be set briefly before he movements. In the event that you put him moving after a shift, he must be set briefly after the shift. Some adolescent football trainers feel that a player must be moving briefly before the ball is snapped, that isn’t accurate, a player can movement a nanosecond before the snap and still be lawful.
