Getting Plays In
Posted 26 March 2012 - 08:59 AM
Do you guys shuttle or use a wrist coach to get the plays in? Or do you have another method?
Basically for the 1st game or 2 they will struggle with formations/assignments I figure. Just wondering what your experiences have been?

We basically thinned down our playbook and to start the season we had only two formations and 8 plays that we ran.
We ran the plays over and over in practice with limited time but were able to get the 8 plays down pat.

I play 9/10 year olds; no huddle. So a basic formation would be gunslinger == 3 wides; I want to go deep, so I call Gunslinger 1 go; motion 2 and 3 to the other side; slant.
Next play, Gunslinger with the 3 getting the ball on motion; so call Gunslinger 3 Ace
next play, I want a naked bootleg to Q; motion all 3 receivers to the other side; call Eyes on Q
FYI -- that was the set of plays I called today and got a touch down
You don't need play cards or wrist bands; just make sure your kids know their numbers and listen to the play call at the lines -- WE NEVER HUDDLE.
