Renegade 10U season
« on: August 20, 2018, 02:22:09 PM »
I am an assistant with our 10U team this year. The team is split with 9-10 year olds, 24 kids in total. We are a pretty small team, but I think we can do well. First game is this Sunday at 2. We have had 5 total practices with the full team, do to all late sign ups. Very very behind, but I am not worry. I will focus on the very basics and go from there. So far I have Blast, gap, stretch, cross, and counter with 4 formations. We will be running Cox's power pistol.

You getting video of this? Finding Cox's Power Pistol Game film is nearly impossible.

The header is supposed to have someone film the games.

We have 5 players the size of 6 year olds. The 6U team came and mirrored us today, coach didn't show, and 5 of our players were there size. I am having a hard time on what to do with them. They do have to get 8 plays, including special teams.

DTs or WRs! If they are tough, DTs. If they are wimps, WR!

I was thinking at wing back, when we run stack.

The issue when you do that is you need the offensive plays to get 5 kids in at 8 plays each.

True. One of these players is 44lbs. The rest are in the 60 lb range. WR, Wing, maybe backside tight end. Honestly one could play corner, great tackler, but the rest probably won't see time on defense. I could be pleasantly surprised, as the season progresses.

We took a 25-0 loss today. Defense played great and offense struggled. They scored on 1 punt and 1 kick off. We stopped them on the 2 yard line to end the game. We turned the ball over 3 times with 2 bad snaps and 1 bad hand off. Line stood up and blocked no one and backs we just lethargic. Heat index was 109 today also, but the other team had to play in it also. Coin flip was won we deferred and they chose receive. Ref ask if we wanted to kick.... obviously. They made us kick off to begin the 2nd half also, because we chose to kick.....what? They returned that to go up 12-0. Reverse got us on both TDs they scored on offense. I did not put wedge in this year and regret it.

I had that happen to me on the coin toss once. My first ever HC gig. Boy did I look foolish when we had to kick off twice.

I ask the head" are you sure the refs understand what is going on" . There is always bad calls, but it isn't why we lost. Everything is fixable. Our best athletes and football players were tapping out on me. Not acceptable, my fault, I will get it right.

I don't understand this.  If you won the toss and deferred your choice, your opponent made the choice to receive.  Why would they ask you if you wanted to kick?  Your opponent already made the choice.

I also don't understand (if your choice was deferred) that you had to kick-off in the second half.  I know you didn't choose to kick it.

Yeah, but what happened here was incorrect procedure by the refs. 

I wonder what would happen if you said we will receive, after deferring.  How would the ref address that when doing his little who won the toss dance.

"Team A has won the Toss, and deferred."

"Team B has elected to receive"

"Team A has also elected to receive"

The refs completely botched the coin toss. The header said of course we are kicking, should of clarified everything with the refs. Although the refs were wrong, him saying of course we are kicking, screwed us over. I am sure the phrase" are you kicking" was supposed to be " which direction do you want to kick" . Then when we kicked in the second half the ref kept saying " you said of course we are kicking" end of story, court is adjourned. Doesn't make any sense, but that's how it played out. While arguing with the refs, players were not mentally ready. Cut your losses and pull players together to get them focused.
