Youth Football Trips Formation Can Give You “Numbers”
By FirstDown PlayBook on Jul 8, 2019

The ability to overload one side or the other with your youth football formation is a powerful tool to use particularly if the opponent’s coaches don’t know how to adjust.  A lot of youth formations are balanced and give you a threat to both sides so when you start overloading to one side the defense can be outnumbered.

It is important to note though that as the offensive coordinator you have to be able to recognize the adjustments to your formation as they show up. The overload advantage can turn into a problem if you do not have an answer back to the weak side.

The FirstDown PlayBook youth football Trips formation is one of our “single width” formations. A single width formation has an extended wide out(s) to only one side. In the case of the Trips formation it is also a 3×1 configuration giving you plenty of offense to the strong side.

Once again, that can be a good thing if you know what to look for from the defense as they begin to adjust. On Tuesday night’s Youth Football Chalk Talk we will look into this with more detail, until then here’s a quick preview.
