Read & React Youth Practices & Drills

Read & React Youth Practices & Drills

Coach Rick Torbett is known worldwide for the development of the Read and React Offense, a system for implementing 5-player coordination without the use of set plays.
This course is the first in a series of eight practices that Coach Rick Torbett directed for a youth team. Even though youth players are demonstrating, you can tweak certain amounts of almost every drill to fit the level you are coaching. You can link these into a series of complete practice plans or mix-and-match to create your own practice plans!
The drills you’ll learn in this online course focus on team coordination and tempo control in the Read & React offense. The drills that the team is running become the offense. There are no drills in this course that do not directly relate to what your players learn while operating the Read and React Offense.

1 Youth Practice: 90-Minutes to a Working Offense

We know that our Youth Read & React coaches are pressed for practice time. Many of you are lucky to get two 90-minute practice sessions a week with your team, and are trying to figure out how to put in all the Read & React has to offer during that short amount of time.

This video shows how Rick would install Layers 1-6 & 17 with a youth team in one 90-minute practice. He uses demonstrators who are between the ages of 9-12, and establishes the framework for the offense that can easily be built upon in subsequent practices.
