Default Learning new things

I am learning all sorts of new blocking and strategies at practice, but my biggest issue is I don't actually try them during scrimmage night. I am scared I will mess it up big time or not execute at the right time and be ineffective. What kind of confidence building advice is out there for me? The biggest one I'd like to get good at is the backwards blocking and sternum blocks/hits.

if your worried about screwing up at scrim your doing it wrong, we use scrim as the opportunity to try new things, the only way to get things like bean dipping, bannanaing and burritoing timed correctly is by screwing them up in scrim.
also get your league to not share scores with the players till after if at all. for scrim its not relevant
