Tips For Coaching Multiple Teams When Coaching Youth Football

Some of you may be in a position where you have to or maybe even want to help coach multiple teams during the same season. It can be done using some planning, scheduling and organizing techniques. Be warned however, it is not recommended for most and certainly not for those who don’t feel very confident in your time management or coaching abilities.

I’ve head coached more than one youth football team in three seasons, more about that later. What is important is I have done it in real life, this isn’t theory. Coaching Youth football is one thing, coaching multiple teams is a whole new equation.

Coaching more than one team may involve organizing your football practices in a way that is much different than what you are used to. In order to make it work, you have to get creative. Here are some of the things I did:

I started my football practices 30 minutes early for my younger team, My older team practiced 30 minutes later than the younger team. This allowed me 30 minutes of time alone with each team.

Early on we had a few practices alone, we varied the days each team practiced to แทงบอลออนไลน์  allow each team one day per week alone with me.

We combined some of the skill building and technique work within age groups. Some of the more advanced and mature kids on the younger team practiced with the older team and some of the weaker older kids were grouped with the younger kids. This allowed our weaker older kids to rep and get better against kids of their own abilities while allowing the more mature younger kids to be challenged by the older kids. The groups worked side by side with both groups doing the same exact drills.

Most of the special teams work and dynamic warm ups including angle form tackling were supervised by my assistants, which gave me segmented “alone time” with one team.

Team Defensive segments were often done by the defensive coordinators after the first few weeks. In the first few weeks it was important to show the defensive coordinators and players how to run a proper team defensive and defensive recognition segment. After that it was just making sure the written practice plan covered what they needed to work on that segment and what football plays and formations they needed to concentrate on defending that week
