As a young football player, getting in a three-point stance can be difficult. To get used to a balanced and parallel stance, try getting in a four-point stance first:


1)      Get in a good breakdown position (eyes, feet, and knees pointing straight ahead w/ knees bent and back straight)

2)      Reach toward the ground with both hands and place them on the ground barely in front of your shoulder pads

3)      Maintain a flat back (pretend that your back is a dining room table)

4)      Rock back, just a little to get your heels closer to the ground


After you complete those steps, simply lift your right or left arm and you’re in a perfect three-point stance.
