Wide Receiver Elimination Drill


This drill is designed to improve the player’s quickness and reaction to the ball.


This drill is somewhat like musical chairs. The coach lines up four or more players. The coach has them kneel on one knee and face him. The drill starts when the coach flips the ball to any player, using a basketball chest pass. When a player drops a ball, he must leave the drill. The drill ends when there is only one player left.

Coaching Points

Emphasize following the ball and catching it in their hands.
