Welcome to the Youth Football Zone with links to other Youth Football Websites and coaching youth football articles, plays, drills, playbooks and more for offense, defense, special teams and practices. This blog post was from May 2008 while I was coaching youth football in the Denver area for the Arvada Pirates with AYFA.
I am Steve Parker and I have been coaching youth sports for the last 6 years and youth tackle football for the past two consecutive seasons and one season in 1994 where I was a co-recipient of Plano Sports Authority Football Coaching Staff of the Year award. I also consulted for a Plano Texas youth football team on player evaluations, draft and first week of practices in 1995.
I am currently on my leagues AMFA Coaches Committee, near Denver Colorado. I have decided to develop a Youth Football Websites. Update 2/3/2021, I did change the website name to Coaching Youth Football Tips, Talk, Plays. I am not sure when I made the name change, I think around 2010.
I grew up in Texas living and breathing football. I was born outside of Ft Worth so I am a huge Dallas Cowboys fan. I started playing organized football in 3rd grade for the YMCA Dad’s club in Spring Branch, just northwest of downtown Houston, Texas. I played football every year until I graduated High School in 1982 in Northwest Houston, Texas.
In HS, my offensive coordinator and linebackers coach was Coach Ron Schroeder, one of the top HS school football coaches in Texas Football History. I learned a lot from Coach Schroeder about offense, discipline and how to play defense. I also want to thank Coach Schroeder for moving me from an OG to a FB on offense. 🙂 A few other coaches that I want to also thank are; Coach Lakin, Coach O’Neal and most of all and the reason that I am a coach today, Coach John Lewis, my Pee Wee football coach. I hope my players remember me, like I remember you.
Since my oldest boy, Berndt or Bear, started playing tackle football two years ago, I have been struggling to find youth football websites for youth football coaches. I must say it has been tough. There are about 10 good sites, but you must hunt them down and luck into them from your Google searches. What I am hoping from this blog and eventual expansion into a complete Youth Football Websites is a single resource that youth coaches may visit to find most of their coaching youth football information.
