Wide Receiver Circle Drill


This Circle Drill is designed to improve player quickness and reaction to the ball.


The coach lines up five players with four of them making a small circle. The fifth player is inside the circle. The player in the middle is three yards from each player. Each player in the outside has a ball. The drill starts when the man in the middle faces one of the outside players and the ball is tossed to him. The player catches the ball, flips it back to that player and turns quickly to his right. The next player does the same thing and the player in the circle goes one around to his left and to his right.

Coaching Points

Emphasize quickness in turning and catching the ball in the hands.
