Then the question is, how much is too much on an individual skill to practice? 30 mins? 35?
This also depends on what division you are playing at, IMO. While I do practice formations at all levels, it "appears" that FIQ would have more impact at D1A, because the players individual skills are already at such a high level, its hard to get big improvements in the individual skills.
At the lower levels, individual attributes are clearly the most important aspects, therefore, FIQ plays a lesser role, IMO.
So, one has to consider, the so called "diminishing returns" of individual skills practice, vs any potential gains in FIQ.
There is no single answer that is correct. Each coach needs to determine his own "right answer" through experimentation and analysis.
