I remember when we started our team, some guys would yell "Mayan" other would yell "Aztec" and others would yell "Temple." It doesn't work. Just pick one and go with it. Also, you have to lead by example. The more you do it the more likely someone will start doing it back. Try running simple drills like 3v1 and having the one back player just calling out every position the 3 players are. Then the 3 can move up and he(the 1) calls there position out again, until they reach the end. One thing we always have our new players do is just repeat what the back play is saying, except stuff like "snake on me" or something like that. Well have him repeat the g count or positions, that way they just get familiar with being vocal.
Thank you. That sounds like a good drill to run. We definitely need to work on getting the message across the field. I know that if we get communication down we can do some damage because our individual skills are on point.
