Modified Youth FootBall Made Easy

By FirstDown PlayBook on Feb 12, 2021

We have been adding a ton of content to our Varsity 6 Man Football and 8 Man Football sections. As we do this we want to remind all of you youth football coaches that the Modified Youth sections still there for you.

This section is a combination of work that we have done with USA Football Rookie Tackle and Football Canada. There are 6v6, 7v7 and 8v8 youth football plays available. Of course, the best thing is that once you go in and find your plays you can edit them to fit your system.

Defense, you ask? Of course. There is a section in your Youth FootBall Defense section devote to Modified as well. It’s just like the Offense. You find them, edit them and then put them in your own PlayBook area.

So take a look at one of our sample Modified 6v6 football plays below as well as the coaching points. Keep in mind that FirstDown PlayBook also makes creating your Wristband Sheets easy too!
