Wrong.

Learn to play without coaching. This is how you become effective. Rest of it is basically correct.

One of the things you need to always be ready for is someone else in the snake - with most snakes being key positions on the field, you need to know how to take that guy out, and if need to even trade out with him, your life isn't important, just killing that guy. if you can kill a couple people then kill that other guy, then do it... always change stuff up and make it so the other team has no idea what you're going to do.
if you can practice putting a god bunker in then running down tape/highway and killing the snake then do that, try it with boxes then with team mates

i personally think sideline coaching is stupid and takes aways from other teams players making good moves that the other team doesn't catch

That is who it isn't nice for.

How will kids ever learn to be aware of the game if someone is telling them what to do all the time?

study the field. know ur shots and where u will get shot from. as for drills- try snapping from awkward positions. snake isnt exactly comfortable. then just running and diving. learn how far u slide on average so ur not oversliding or undersliding

Haha wrong. As a coach I teach and coach at practice. Reason being it's alot easy to sideline coach in practice because there's not screaming crowds and the pressure of tournament. At practice I'm right there and I'm able to Show the shots that way a player can learn them. When an event comes he already knows the shots so I as a coach can worry about other things such as G counts and what not.

Learning to play with a sideline coach telling you what to shoot and when to move is the stupidest way to learn snake.

Mainly because of what you said yourself "screaming crowds".

If a player learns to rely more on his coach than himself then what is that player going to do when he can't hear or see his coach on the sidelines? He'll have to play with himself and his team to know those G counts and whatnot.

memorize the field and each bunker to the point that when you come up, you know that the bunker you're looking for is what you will be pointed at. Also, learn to read the paint coming over your head and down the tape. You should be able to sit in the snake and tell if paint is coming from you're player or an opponent and exactly where on the field it is coming from. Most players are unable to do such.

Be in condition. Snake involves a lot of crawling around, having to shoot while keeping as low as possible, and if you make it to the other end of the snake you need to know how and be able to wrap around the field. Grab your marker, get into a low snake position behind a couch or something and practice snapping while on all fours.

im playing in a series that doesnt allow coaching. i always get effed over when people try to coach. "GO GET HIM NOW!" "thanks for letting him know I'm coming coach..."

Practice your fast movement, get rid of tunnel vision, get better at gun fighting, get so good at your movement that you dont have to gun fight, practice switching hands, practice with your "wrong hand", work out at a gym to make your back and legs stronger (all snake players know why I say that). This list could go on and on. you have to find something that works for you.

i think that once in a while trying a run thru is good if you have another guy pushing up to. so there is a scapegoat eaither way, but it shouldnt be done all the time, you gotta mix it up.

You could always start using a code word for it. That would seem a sensible thing to do.

I always use "Thanksgiving Turkey" as a code word. "uhh hey, Bob....why is the other team chanting about a turkey?"
