Youth Football Offense – Coaching Clinic


Here is another video on my youth football coaching clinic series, Youth Football Offenses. Enjoy the video.


Youth Football Offense Tips

  • Have a “real” playbook not napkins
  • Base Offense on Personnel not Scheme
  • Start learning holes, positions, play calling language day 1
  • Work on your QB / Center Exchange everyday
  • The Sweep and Run are more important in Youth Football, this is not the NFL or NCAA
    • Passing % should be Age of Player Minus 3
      8 yrs old – 3 = 5%
      13 yrs old – 3 = 10%
      Adjust if you have the right talent but be VERY careful
