Thanks Coach! I am going to make a point of focusing on getting off the LOS faster and uncoiling their hips as they strike. I'm still a little unsure on flippers at this point, but figure the kids will let me know what works best for them. I just have a hard time believing kids at this age can hand fight effectively and still control the defender.

Kids play patty cake at this level just fine. Best they know who to block rather than how to block.

The biggest reason the 2 point works so well at this level....now the OLM can actually see whats in front of them pre snap.   ;D

I'm sure you could, but my question is why. One of the things I have seen over the years, is coaches who couldn't teach a 3pt use a 2pt. Then they don't teach a 2pt & it doesn't matter.


Coaches like DP who use a 2pt also coach it. They work hard on firing out low & get off from the 2pt. So if you know how to do this then the concepts would work fine from a 2pt. However; if your plan is to use a 2pt because you don't teach a good 3pt, then it is merely an exercise in futulity. I can't tell you how many times I have seen bad 3pt stances at the youth level, & the coach is looking for a different blocking scheme.


Now, if you feel that 2pt is better for your team for specific reasons. Core strength is the usual reason I hear. Then the 2pt will work if you coach it. Personally, I played in a 3pt & have coached it for a long time. IMHO it is just better. I have a few times with specific players used a 2pt successfully, but it was very rare and only for a few specific players.


My advice is give me a call & we can go through the why's of using each.

Can we run these concepts with our oline in a 2 point vs a 3 point?

iím not as sold on 9 year olds being able to cover the same amount of ground. I realize itís relative, but at this age I feel like at this age the ball carriers are usually ahead of the defenders.

In Pop Warner, ball-carriers on offense also play as defenders on defense.  I don't see the problem.

DC46, being man, requires more speed as well as corners that can fight through a weak blocker and make the tackle.  So, yes, more talent than the KB.

I haven't taught a 3 point stance in 7 years. You're probably going to find that your players get off the ball faster. I've only had two "issues" in that time.

One of our opponents (2nd grade, about 6 years ago) scouted us and really drilled their d-line to get off low and had some success with that early in the game. I don't think it was as much about us being too high, but their d-line playing better due to the focus on low, fast get off. At halftime, we stressed a good athletic 2 point stance and were able to get back to business.

Another time, we had an idiot ref who made up his own rule.

Cody, my understanding is the conference commish is asking everyone for their declarations.  According to the email I received:  "FB Commissioners, I know that some of you have sent me your declarations but please text them to me again. Text will be better. Iím looking for one D1 JPW. I have already received D1 PW."

From that email, it seems that Division 1 PeeWee has already been determined.  I have no idea which division we'll be in.  I know there are 14 PeeWee teams.  As far as I'm concerned, there should be 7 teams in each division.  If it were me, I'd draw the teams out of a hat.

The guidelines for how teams are assigned is never very clear. I do know that if there are multiple teams in the same org at the same level. One will have to go D1 and the other D2. I don't know how he decides when it's only 1 team at the level, although I've been told the perennial winners are pushed to D1.

Both defenses are excellent. What are the requirements for each (outside of knowing how to coach them)? How many studs? How much speed? How do you select players for each? That sort of thing. I've coached the KB and  love it. I also loved installing JJ's 33-Stack Attack. I have no experience with the 46. I honestly have no idea what I'm going to have as far as numbers, speed, talent or experience. I don't even know if I'll have 1 or 2 ACs. I'll be coming into everything blind.
Just run mohonz's new facemelter defense which is a combo of both.
