2018 Season ....... already🤔
« on: January 08, 2018, 03:12:58 PM »
I have been asked to coach our 14U team this coming season. They won 1 game last year and the peanut gallery was horrible. 12 of 20 kids were a year younger. I hope we have enough players to let the younger players to play at their own age group. 7 of the players have contacted me with hopes that I do coach them. 99% sure I will be coaching them, but I have them recruiting as I type. I plan on holding spring practices for them and hope it convinces some kids to play. We also have flag in the spring, which could help in recruiting. Nobody else wants to coach this group, which makes me want it even more.

I always thought 14 U was the best age to coach in Youth Football. We had a brand new team every year. Especially after being so poor, you should get a great reception.

Good Luck, if you need anything let me know.

What did you mean by "12 of 20 were a year younger"? Does that mean you have 12 returners? If so, that'd be an awesome way to start a team.

They were 12U last year and 12 of them should have been 11U. Since the numbers were down, they moved up an age group.

I had 5 kids play up last year and if their 8 comeback, we will have 13. Hope to recruit 10 more players. It just burns me that coaches run from teams they deem unworthy, don't want nothing to do with them. Out of all my years, good or bad, I have never had parental issues. No matter who is playing, it's my job to get them to be the best players they can be.

I have your power point and may put it to use this year. Just got to get a coaching staff together.

Nice. Sucks for last years team, but you should greatly benifit from them playing a year at that level & returning. Team that ultimately won our conference this year, returned 9 kids. Best team we ever had, we returned 5 players.

That's an age group where you rarely get returning players. At least it is in our format.
