I am curious how other high school teams run their practices. Not so much as drills, conditioning or play. Its who practices against who.

Does "your" team practice:

Varisty vs Varsity (V offense vs V defense)
JV vs Varsity (JV O vs V D )

This is mostly for 5a schools as they are larger and have platoon schemes.

But please anyone shout back and let me know

At katy in the 90's we went mostly with huddles
the 1 offense against the 2 defense, and 1 defense against 2 offense
and JV Sophmore would do the same, except the JV/Soph would rotate 1 day being the scout team for the #2's and the other day running Katy's plays.

We currently are trying to move to a system similar to what the King has described. We do however spend about 20 minutes a day with the ones against the ones in order to get the most realistic game look possible (10 minutes O and 10 minutes D). I myself think we are taking a huge risk in doing this. We lost our starting mike this year to what can be best described as a "dislocated foot" (His foot was turned 180 degrees in the wrong direction). He was running scout for our #1 offense.

Sorry to hear that. Thanks for your input.

My sons (JV Soph) team, runs this 3 S 2 D...................strictly same **** different day.

JV "D" vs. V "O" JV Soph "D" vs. V (2nd team) "O"
same for Defense.

Now you would think practicing against the varsity would make them a better team, not so. THe underclassmen spend at least 45 minutes of practice visiting and cutting up on the sidelines, and Im being conservative with 45 minutes! And its sad because you have at least 8 "O" coaches watching Varsity about the same number watching "D".....this is EVERY DAY! sophs arent learning anything (just getting hammered) varsity gets "swole" up thinkin g they can run over anyone (then get run over) in a real game. I dont know its just frustrating. This high school has a long losing history maybe its just engrained in them.

This is for the most part what seperates the bad from the good teams. At Klein Collins we do the same when they run team but the jv teams give good looks and ARE getting better. It's up to the coaching staff to keep them from cutting up on the sidelines but for the most part if you are on the sidelines during scout team then chances are you aren't a very good player in the first place. If you go 1's vs 1's then the chances of getting hurt increase astronomically. IMO it's stupid to go 1's vs 1's to scout for each other going full tilt.

Sometimes that can be benificial if you know you are playing a team with a huge stud, but your right you want to minimize risk
