Youth Football Coach’s Reading List

It’s almost a new year, 2012.  Can you believe it?  No, me either.

If you are like me, you are starting to think about your next youth football season and developing your plans. Since we play Spring ball here in Keller, TX, we’ve already had a few coaches meetings .  What did we do right, wrong, and should have done?

It seems like each season after these meetings and before tough games, I will pull out one of the books below and reference one or two things, or just re-read or scan the book again for ideas and or answers.  I probably have 50 or so books in my youth football library, but these are my favorites and trusted stand bys:

  1. The Toss by Jerry Vallotton
  2. Coaching Offensive Lineman by Dave Christensen
  3. Coaching Team Defense by Fritz Shurmur
  4. Directory of Football Defenses by Drew Tallman
  5. Complete Book of Drills for Winning Football – Michael D. Koehler
  6. Coaching Youth Football by John T. Reed
  7. Winning Youth Football – Dave Cisar
  8. Coaching Football by Tom Flores
  9. Football Scouting Methods by Steve Belichick
  10. Football; principles and play by David M Nelson

I usually buy these books used on Amazon.  I wait until I can get a good copy for around $10 plus shipping.  Many of these books are out of print and sometimes demand a high price.  Wait a few months and you may find a copy on Amazon or Ebay.  Also, Google the author and they may have an old copy for sale or an ebook copy.

Yes, I know many of these books are older books.  But think about it, youth football is mainly a running game like football was in its early days before passing became so popular in the mid 1970’s.  Trust me these are great football books.  This is my top 10 best coaching youth football books as of today.

Other good web resources that I frequent are Gregory Double Wing , DumCoach Boards and USA Football.

Have a great New Year.

Youth Football Playbook eBook by Coach Parker

youth football offensive play book by coach parkerSince many of you have been asking for a copy of my youth football playbook, I put together a pdf ebook of some of the youth football plays I ran in 2010 for a 3rd grade and 6th grade team.  These plays are still in draft form without individual responsibilities and blocking call not finalized.  I do NOT want to give my opposing coaches all my complete offensive plays, especially since I keep running into more and more youth football coaches reading my blog.

The youth football plays in the playbook are drawn in my Speed variation of the Double Wing and Double Wing Spread Gun formations along with my Space version of the Single Wing and Beast  (Loud Rowdy Monkey) formation that I have been running since 1994.  The Speed plays can also be run from the Spread and Spy or my I formation variation.

You are more than welcome to use these plays in your offense, but please do not post large portions or the complete pdf document to other websites and do not use the information on commercial websites. Please feel free to copy, edit, update and customize the playbook for your private individual non- commercial use, but please do not reproduce for commercial use on football playbook sites or any other commercial site.  I intend to publish my complete finalized plays in my youth football book to be released in the Summer of 2012.  I wish you the best using these youth football plays.
