Easy Football Game Plannerby Football For Coaches
Teach Faster. Practice Efficiently. Win More.
How do you teach your offense?
If it’s pure memorization, I get it.
Players just don’t put in the time outside of practice.
Then you have to simplify things so much that they need a lot of extra teaching on the field - again reps are wasted.
One or two plays a day doesn’t add up very quickly by the time you need to be using them in your first game.
I always ended up cramming in plays the last week because we had to get our offense in on time. How can we get plays in faster so we can get the reps we need?
What about your weekly practice organization?
Pull a play out, put a new one in...practice and situational scripts it all was just too much to type it all out and then have to go in and change things up again.
At best, I shot a quick email to coaches with the plays we needed to call that day and waited till thursday to finally put together a full gameday call sheet.
How do you manage the game?
Every coach loves a good call sheet. Even if we have it all upstairs, a well organized call sheet is a good reminder of all the tools you have at hand.
While I never let a decent call sheet slip, It took a ton of time every week to keep it updated with only the plays we ran in practice and felt confident going into the game with.
How does your season progress?
If you have to keep everything super simple, don’t think about trying different shifts, motions or play variations.
We always hope to put that stuff in but it all depends and is pretty much the first thing that gets dropped. I
If we are struggling, even though it would help us, we never try to add it on for fear of overwhelming players.
I always kept trying to figure out how teams install complex plays without causing more mental errors?
This exact problem is the one of the top reasons I went back to the drawing board to find something that works and actually saves coaches time.
Maybe you have tried to get it all set-up once in a nice organize spreadsheet, but then school starts and your preparation time goes down to burning the midnight oil or mornings so early you’ve done a whole days work before the sun comes up.
Then by week three, your file ends up in the deep recesses of your hard drive rarely to be opened due to the sheer terror of all the frustrating busy work that you know it takes just to set it all up.
