Do You Have A Football Resume?

By FirstDown PlayBook on Mar 6, 2021

Websters dictionary lists the following when you look up the definition of the word “resume”.

Resume: a short account of one’s career and qualifications 

There are several ways to document a football coach’s career and qualifications. How his or her players perform is certainly near or at the top of the list. Your player’s performance on and off the field is something we all take very personally.

However, fair or not, this is often accredited in large part to the player’s talent. For a coach, it is going to come down to more than how your players play. It’s always going to be about your experience or your resume.

Sadly enough, a lot of good football coaches don’t document their experience. You are certainly a better football coach than you were last year (or at least you better be). Keeping an account of your professional growth is critical.

One of the ways to record this and to organize this is with your personal football playbook. Playbooks are not just for the players. If they were then ball coaches would not lug around boxes and boxes of their old playbooks every time they move.

These football playbooks are your resume. They are, as the dictionary says, an account of your experience, career, and qualifications. FirstDown PlayBook was created, in part, based on this. It all started when company founder, Charlie Coiner wanted a better way to keep track of his past playbooks as he traveled the country coaching football.

Today, things are much easier for you as a football coach. FirstDown PlayBook provides you technology that allows you to record, organize and most importantly never lose your hard work. This way your “football resume” is always at your fingertips when you need it.

FirstDown PlayBook is the only Digital Football PlayBook that gives you access to over thirty five thousand football plays, schemes and technique help.
