To expand on What Eddie was saying:
Let's say we have 5 weekends of practices until a tournament.
The first weekend will be more focused on technical and individual skills and conditioning to get us tired to make the drills harder. As we get closer to the tournament, we will switch towards situational game drills and more scrimmages. The weekend when we have the layout is pretty much learning the field and some more situational things.
We always stretch before we practice. We have been doing a lot of 1on1s and 2on3s as of late.
Nick always has us doing suicides before drills/scrimmages to help with conditioning and make us more tired for the next drill so that it is harder.
We always stress communication.
Saturdays are the days we really try to learn and improve our skills individually and as a team.
Sundays are rotation days. We use that time to apply what we learned as well as give teams that come to Fox 4 a chance to practice us.
I think 2on3s have helped us a lot because it really helps us focus on HOW to close/defend a point properly.
