General thoughts
General Thoughts

  • Youth Football is not High School, College or NFL

    • Each age group is different and must be approached differently

    • Each Level is different and must be approached accordingly

    • Coaching opponents will be different

  • Put kids in a position where they can succeed

    • Keep your best 4-6 kids on field ALL THE TIME

  • Attempt to give everyone a starting position

  • Always coach – don’t let anything slip

    • Little things lead to big things

Offensive thoughts
Offensive Thoughts

  • A formation is not an Offense

  • Offense takes time to develop, don’t rush it

    • Start slow, target 2nd half of season for optimization

  • You must adjust & evolve DURING THE SEASON

    • What worked week 1 might not work in week 8

    • Won’t work in Week 8 against better coaching

  • Pass sparingly

  • Focus on Offensive Line

    • Doubleteam blocks at point of attack

    • Down block to give your player an advantage

  • Double Wing

    • E or D Level @ advantage with people playing back

    • Federal or Liberty

    • Gives you advantage with smaller players

    • Easy to install: You can win with 6-8 plays


  • Make the tackle

    • Work on it in every practice: Form, Dummies or Live

  • 6 Man Line at most levels

  • Gap Control

    • Use alignment techniques to give defensive line the advantage without letting them know which hole you are going in

  • Bring corners in tighter

    • Don’t give their passing game too much respect until they earned it

    • Better off having more run support for the 90% of plays which will be running plays

    • Lockdown their TE’s if they do pass

      • Limits their passing without sacrificing run defense

  • Do not pursue into backfield – Lateral Pursuit

  • Reduce/minimize running lanes available for ball-carrier

  • Must be prepared tomirror offensive player movement
