5 Levels of Contact for Safer Practices

To reduce the risk of injury, USA Football recommends no more than 90 minutes per week of full-contact drills (or 120 minutes during the pre-season).

So, to make it easy on you and your coaching staff, we marked each drill with a "Level of Contact" icon, ranging from "Air" to "Live."

So you can introduce skills in a safe, progressive way before advancing to full-contact drills, spend the right amount of time in helmets and pads, and help your kids master the fundamentals more quickly.

  • Air

    Intensity Level 1

    Drill is run unopposed and without contact

  • Bag

    Intensity Level 2

    Drill is run against a bag or soft-contact surface

  • Control

    Intensity Level 3

    Drill is run at an assigned speed until the moment of contact with one player as the predetermined winner. Contact is above the waist, and players stay on their feet.

  • Thud

    Intensity Level 4

    Drill is run at competitive speed through the moment of contact. There is no predetermined winner. Contact is above the waist, players stay on their feet, and a quick whistle ends the drill.

  • Live

    Intensity Level 5

    Drill is run in game-like conditions. This is the only time players are taken to the ground.
