What’s in your Youth Football Coaches Bag? #1 Winning Items!

What’s in your youth football coaches bag?  Hopefully a mouthpiece or two. I carry two bags to my youth football practices; my football coaches bag / backpack and a team football coaches equipment bag.

I carry two bags to my youth football practices; my backpack and a team equipment  bag.  In my backpack I keep a few necessary items close at hand like mouthpieces and paper & pens that I use to make notes when needed.  I keep these personal items separate from the equipment bag now because the equipment bag gets tossed around a lot, and I had items like video cameras taking big hits and or getting wet.  The separate bags make it easy to find things in a hurry.

Here is an updated article and video; What’s in Your Coaching Bag? – Coaching Clinic

Football Coaches Bag

My Team Equipment bag is a large Easton / Ogio wheeled bag made for baseball. It’s on its 8th football and baseball season.  Well worth the money.  I can throw the back pack on top and roll out to the field.  I am getting too old to carry a huge bag across several football fields.

Yes the last few in the equipment bag section, I leave in my SUV.  I usually leave these items in my Expedition all football season.  Its a pain to take them out every night after practice.  My back windows are tinted so its difficult to see whats in the rear.  Make sure you lock your car if you leave these items in your car for extended periods.  Best if you have a garage at home.

I hope that will jump start your coaching bag list of items, so you are always prepared.  What do you carry in your equipment coach’s bag.  I would love to know. Please comment in the comment section. Contact me anytime.
