FirstDown PlayBook Installs: July 24-30
By FirstDown PlayBook on Jul 24, 2018

One of the biggest challenges that FirstDown PlayBook tackles on a daily basis is the number of different rules out there that the different leagues follow. For you, the coach, it’s not that big of a deal because often the rules are pretty straightforward and fair because, after all, everyone  has to play by them right?

For FirstDown PlayBook however, these are all adjustments that we ultimately need to make to our football playbook sections as we continue to grow and serve you. Obviously the FirstDown PlayBook Editing Tool that will be released in 2019 is going to solve a lot of problems for everyone, including us, but in the meantime we want continue to help you with plays that fit your leagues rules.

This week’s FirstDown PlayBook installs includes one such rule that we have learned about for youth football defense. It appears that some leagues are imposing a rule that require the defense to play with two deep safeties. This is probably a well intended rule that actually might be a good idea as long as you also make it illegal for the quarterback to run the football but that’s a discussion for another day.

In the meantime, we are going to install a few two deep safety adjustments for our youth football defenses. These will allow you to play by the rules but at the same time not allow the offense to spread you out and take advantage of the numbers mismatch. We will introduce that on Saturday.

For Tuesday and Thursday of this week we will stay in the youth football areas as well. We will shore up the 5v5 Flag Football area where all of the plays are drawn with NFL Flag and USA Football rules in mind. We will also complete the youth football spread offensive formation for this year. This will include a few unbalanced looks just as we have done for your other youth football formations.

Varsity coaches, hang in there. We have big plans for you this fall. We understand that the bulk of your preparation for the 2018 season is completed (It better be) so after we get our youth coaches up and running we are going to work on some extensive packages for you this fall. A combination of this work and the release of the editing tool is going to make this a football coaching resource like no other.
