Coaching Youth Fooball - Football Plays

My name is Steve, I live in Northeast Indiana, and I've been coaching 6 on 6 flag football for the last 3 years. I made the 'mistake' of checking the box indicating that I would help out with my boys teams whe we registered the first year and was summarily made head coach of both teams. :blink: Talk about a trial by fire and learning on your feet! Boy has it been an adventure, sometimes a bit (ok a lot) crazy, but it has been a whole lot of fun for all of us and I have learned a lot about myself and about my kids in the process. I have a 12 yr old son that is moving on to tackle next season and 8yr old boy/girl twins that will keep me in flag for another 3 or 4 years. I am a recovering klutz and had a few tragic years of youth sports before giving in to the inevitable and retiring my cleats for good. I am an avid Colts fan, and am still mourning the loss of Manning, but looking forward to watching the new squad take shape this year.

I'm an IT Manager for a construction company, but I also pastor a small church and am currently finishing seminary, so I keep pretty busy.

I have really enjoyed reading the posts on this site and have learned a lot doing so. I only wish I would have stumbled on this forum 3 years ago! :D

Hey all,

I am a newbie to coaching flag football or any sport at all. My son is now playing 4-6 8 v 8 flag football and I've decided to help assistant coach. So far we've played one game and done well and I truly enjoyed it. I think I enjoy it almost as much as my 5 year old does. It is a bit overwhelming dealing with attention spans but still worth it. Looking forward to reading all types of advice/suggestions.

I was on here before then dropped off the forum.

I started coaching 5 on 5 flag as an assistant in the Fall 2009. Spring 2010 was an assistant again. Fall of 2010 to present (Fall 2013) I have been head coach of the Girls NFL CP Chiefs.

Had real success in my third season through 6th or 7th. Girls NFL Flag 8-11 year olds. Had 5 straight Championship games. Won three in a row. Was undefeated during those three seasons.

Then half my team aged up to 12-14 division. I kept the 8-11 and did 12-14. Both teams suffered and it was like starting over. Made a few more Super Bowls at both ages since but did not win.

Now Fall 2013 I have just the 12-14 age team. Rebuilding again and a few old players came back.

Off to a 2-1 start but the team we play this week took #3 in the Nation at the Regionals.

Glad to be back and posted my playbook on forum.
