High School Football

High School Football
High school football coaches are at the core of what FirstDown PlayBook does. Yes, we serve all of the coaching communities. No doubt about that. However, we understand that there is a degree of pressure on the prep coaches with little to no pay in return. We offer high school coaches advantages in many ways. The first obvious way is a football playbook tool that saves you time and helps you coach better. FirstDown PlayBook did not forget the football when we were developing this tool either. There are over 35,000 football plays in FirstDown PlayBook. This gives a high school football coach a big head start when it comes to getting ready for playbooks and weekly installs. We have also added practice scripts, practice schedules, text wristband sheets and FirstDown PlayBook also is the only football coach reference site out there that offers high school football coaches help every day. We do this on the Coaches Community website every day. Here's the kicker, at no charge. Why? Because FirstDown PlayBook is for coaches by coaches.
