Your Feeder Programs Are Your Program
By FirstDown PlayBook on May 31, 2019

Football coaches love to show others how much football that they know. Often times as coaches show this vast knowledge of the game they develop their very own terminology to describe the play, technique or scheme.

Now there is nothing wrong with this as long as you understand that often times what is being taught is absolutely nothing new. In fact, it has been taught for many years, only by a different name. The ones that pop to mind these days are the 4-2-5 and 3-3-5 terminology that describes something that has been around for many decades.

So think for a moment, if coaches use all of this different terminology to describe what they are trying to teach and it’s a bit confusing to other coaches, just think how the young players must feel. Fortunately, if you are a young player you haven’t been exposed to too much other than what your coach tells you but there still can be some confusion to deal with.

There are players that at the age of ten years old until they are twelve who are taught in a system that uses one set of terminology only to walk into the first high school or junior varsity meeting to find out that they have been taught french and now they need to learn spanish. Football is a hard enough game without asking the young players to overcome that barrier high from jumpstart.

This is all pretty senseless and avoidable if you work with your feeder programs before they get into your high school building. FirstDown PlayBook is set up perfectly to help you accomplish this with ease as you will see when you watch this video.
