Here is a video on Youth Football Practice Plans; more specifically of an 8u Practice Plan Template in Word that is over at my private youth football coaching Facebook group. These 2 hour football practice plans are actual practice plans I used with one of my 7u / 8u pee wee teams a few years back.
Below is the youth football coaching video on my 8U youth football practice plans. This video reviews the first 6 practices, practice before 1st few games plan, pre-scrimmage practice & pre-game practice, and a post game practice.
