I agree with Dave.  It can be done however, your biggest obstacle in Youth Ball is time.  Even with 3 or 4 A/C's time is your enemy.  With one Coach you have to have a high level plan and weed out some of the things that you would do in Indie and Group and do it in TEAM.  So to you have to slim down your drills, plays to those that give you the most Bang for the Buck.  Trust your eyes and your gut to make decisions.

My parents are all but non existent. So now is the time to prepare for next season. I love coaching Defense. Always have. Now I am not seeing anyway to not coach the offense as there seems to be nobody else. Is it possible to do it all?

Yes, but depending on how detailed you (usually) are or you want to be, you need to understand that there's going to be things that slip through the cracks.  You just need to identify what those things are.  Last season, I coached 38 players with one AC.  I am OCD/anal-retentive/detail-oriented to the Nth degree.  It drove me crazy having to rob Peter to pay Paul.  I hope I won't have to do it that way again, but...I will if I have to.

In two days, I am heading to Orlando for the USAFootball national conference.  I'll be arriving Wednesday and leaving Sunday.  Going to do the drive-down and back.

General Discussion / Mission Statement
« Last post by CoachDP on Today at 05:56:00 PM »
I have recently hired a new assistant coach.  I told him that one of the prerequisites to coaching on my staff was to submit a mission statement to me.  Here is his reply:


Hi Dave,

I think this is what I'm about as a coach. Thanks for having me do it, I have never really put it down on paper before.

"To be fulfilled as a coach I must have no doubt that I have done my best to instill character in all athletes that I coach. The type of character that does not run from a challenge, leads teammates by example, and can achieve their goals through hard work, sacrifice, and dedication to the process. Give me all you have, try your best to win, and enjoy the journey."

It was never real option.

Very happy to hear the Giants job is filled.  BB could still leave, but that job being open was worrying me.

Yeah, I know. I was just kinda hoping that against Foles we had a chance. Anyway, as I told my kids, better to lose like this than to lose on a fluke play or, God forbid, a missed field goal.
