Special Teams Half Line Field Goal Drills


The purpose of these Half Line Field Goal Drills is to teach and practice correct assignments and steps of the field goal team members.


Working from left hash to right hash.

You will need 3 holders, 3 long snappers and three kickers.

This drill is done rapid fire so that you can get maximum reps.

Each coach must spread around so that they can make sure each group is doing the correct responsibilities.

After the kicker has made 3 kicks they will rotate to the next spot.

You can also do this drill as a half line on each hash.

Coaching Points

  • Rapid fire – so you get more reps
  • Rapid fire – to accustom the snapper, holder and kicker to pressure
  • Make sure defense doesn’t cheat by going way over the “open” side – especially vs the G-C-G group!


  • 10-12 Footballs (Kicking Balls)
