Building a First Class Program
« on: May 11, 2016, 09:41:06 PM »
I have landed my first HS coaching job as a defensive AC for varsity and also the JV HC. I'm still the football director for our youth program and also expect to coach there in some capacity. Yes, it will be a busy fall. Luckily I will be working with very capable and experienced staffs.

My question is about what you have done or have seen done to elevate a decent program to an excellent program? I've never coached above the middle school level, but I also want advice on what I can do for things like helping the upperclassmen get noticed and recruited. The HS HC already has a solid weight training program in place, but I am unaware of a speed or agility regimen.

Is there a better forum or sub-forum for my question?

I think Huey's might be a better fit for this as it is hs program specific question. I know Hueys has guys that can help.

1- talk to the HC- find out if he wants you to try and do any of the things you want to do.

2- many ways to help with "getting noticed" including use of fieldlevel.com and hudl and getting kids to camps during the summer of their junior/senior year.

3- speed/agility stuff is not any big deal to add to existing strength programs (provided your hc wants to do that)

Thank you both. I have a great relationship with the HC, but I agree it is certainly best to confirm up front and get his blessing.
