Tips for Coaching

Techniques for defensive linemen

Football coaches want their defensive linemen to be aggressive, strong, quick, and durable. Notice large is not a prerequisite (although it certainly doesn't hurt). There are several effective pass rush techniques. Let's examine a few:
The Swim

The Swim Technique is a technique often used by pass rushers. The Swim gets its name from the fact that when properly executed the player has the appearance of a swimmer's upstroke.

In the swim the defender hits with the open hand the side of an opponent's shoulder pads at about chest level. With the other hand the defender reaches out and over the shoulder of the blocker. The elbow is brought down to hook behind the defender. This technique is sometimes employed when a defender has an obvious size and/or strength advantage.

The Rip

The Rip Technique is usually employed by defenders and special teams players but especially by defensive linemen. The idea is to raise the arm close- handed backwards beneath the elbow and punch past the opponent's shoulder.

The Rip does not involve unnecessary contact. The object is not to hit the player full breath, rather to propel one's own torso beyond the shoulder and torso of the blocker. Then raising the elbow and coming backwards with it in a hooking motion further positioning oneself past the blocker.

Bull Rush

The Bull Rush Technique calls for the defender to get his hands up under the armpit area of the blocker and drive him back into the back field by vigorously pumping the legs and "bull rushing" into the backfield.

Senior comp team places at US Finals

 
 
Having qualified for the 2015 US Finals, our senior comp team hit the mat at The Rhode Island Convention Center Friday, May 1st. Facing some fierce competition from other finalists from the region, our Pioneers delivered an outstanding performance and earned a third place trophy.  Our girls delivered an incredible routine which included several late choreography and stunt changes.  The competition marked the end of another comp season for the seniors, which included numerous ups-and-downs.  Despite early setbacks, the senior girls came together and proved themselves as one of the premier rec teams in the region, earning several consecutive competition championships and securing their bid to compete at the US Finals in Providence.  The Warminster Pioneers are extremely proud of these athletes and look forward to seeing everyone on the mat again next season!

The Warminster Pioneer U10 "Middles" competition cheer squad took the stage at The Virginia Beach Convention Center on May 9th in the US Finals.  Having secured their bid to compete in the national championship event, the U10 team faced other top qualified rec teams from the region, finishing with a second place trophy and securing yet another national championship placing for the Pioneers.  The girls delivered a spectacular routine, finishing less than 0.5 point behind the first place squad.  The event marked the conclusion of a breakout season for our U10 squad, during which our girls dominated local and regional events, and earned a national ranking as one of the top rec cheer teams in the country!  We congratulate these exceptional athletes and look forward to more success next season.  Visit our photo albums to view images from the event.
