Joe and Michael are both correct
Train them, if they don't know anything they can do something- a one tasker

That's why Im a big process- systems guy
Let them follow a template that works- anyone can coach if they can see, can pass the background check and have an IQ above 90

What I find trouble is the IQ over 120. When guys think they are the smartest in the room they will add & distort the drills & ideas.

The key word is think.

"I thought adding a shoulder roll & a Sprint would make the drill better."

ME "It's called first step for a reason!"

Good one

What kills me are the first year guys who do that
OR the guy who hasnt ever won- instead of going with something that is proven- he has to add in his "twist" to screw the whole thing up- he doesnt get that his "twists" are the reason his results sucked in the first place

I'll add something a bit out of context

Michael helped my son and I come up with a workout regimen to help us meet certain goals

I didnt change it a bit. We started at first of November and changed to Michaels routines- with zero changes I think in Jan
We did some testing at the end of March and got some great results
Not quite what he gets out of his rowers- but really happy based on the amount of time weve invested

The only twist Ive put on it is made it fun
We are lifting 3 days a week and we are Hans and Franz- with the Austrian accent and everything- he loves it
The other 2 days we are doing Michaels version of Sprint 8

I think sometimes Younger coaches loose sight of what is actually happening within a scheme. So, in turn they think they can change things with no effect. On a pass play the off side receiver maybe running a route to occupy the secondary, they will change it & wonder why the safety flows into the play. We are going to change the footwork on a play because we can't teach it. Never mind the footwork was designed to break the defensive keys. They become myopic looking only at the individual play, & not how it fits into the overall scheme.

You have seen me on the field. All of my drills I have stolen step for step. It is very rare I will construct my own drill, usually to fix an individual problem that needs addressing.

I can see you & N doing Hans & Franz. I needed a chuckle this am.

Does he still sing the Nebraska fight song when he does well?  LOL

That's good thing, & I agree to keep kids interested it need to be fun. Same with a good practice. The whole movement to music during practice is that it actually helps with concentration, & makes practice enjoyable.

He's only 9

Yes he likes it because he sees progress being made

But before he saw the progress being made- the buy in was the Hans and Franz stuff

Kids

Thanks for the advice- it's working so far

Today with the internet & all the coaching sites available it's even easier.

It makes me crazy that guys are looking for the magic bullet instead of ways to teach tackling & blocking better.

Joe


I'm very encouraged to read this from you Joe. As the players want to be better football players, I want to be a better coach. I care more about how to teach something rather than what to teach them.

I was very fortunate to have some excellent mentors. One always said, "It's not what I know as a coach but what my players know on the field.". Another always said, never tell a player what to do but drill them.

The game changes so fast all we as coaches can do is be true to what we do.
