Taking responsibility for teaching and responsibility as Youth Football Coach

Young coaches are in a unique position to teach their players and their coaches fellow accountability. Many youth football teams have with the number of group dynamics to deal with, and parents, children, the assistant coaches, referees and even the coach of the opposing team. In my mind the most important and most impressive player is group dynamics. The adults have already established their world, but children are most in the development process and their oftenJust copy what they see others they respect. This means that as a youth football coach you have a great responsibility, a man of great integrity.

Unfortunately, our world has shifted the blame to another company. It seems that every time something goes wrong, we want the others responsible for the problem is that nobody is guilty of everything. The criminals are not guilty, had with their environment and childhood do. Our company also has a booming economy, with the guilt of other defendants in the firstcompanies with deep pockets to sue for our incompetence. Just think about the elderly woman who spilled hot coffee on her lap in a car and stole millions, or the man who ate Vaseline and ill, because the glass does not say "inedible". Our society has evolved into a world of excuse-makers and some football coaches are right there, arm in arm with them.

If a football team loses, you hear a litany of excuses from coaches, was to blame blame the referee, players, the wind and weatherDebt, we were missing players cheated, the other team, we have size, we do not have the speed, we do not have the athletes, our children are not taken, our children are not aggressive, the other team was lucky, our kids didn 't do Listen, you try to have fun, we do not have enough players, the children do not "want" is that we run, we have less practical than the other team, etc etc etc. Many of the excuses feel border on the bizarre and should be the National Enquirer, but in the endMore than anything, "the dog ate my homework." Many football coaches are some of the largest producers of an excuse and that there are many paid high school coaches. I often wonder why the coach to lose all these problems if the weather is really bad for his team, his opponent plays in a different field with different weather conditions? The opponents do not have children who are sick, or not, or is it only happen with his team?

In 2005, we beat a team that had not lost in 5 yearsHis excuse was one of his sons was ill. In this game, I started my 4 String Pond, my first teamer broke his arm in Game 5, my knee hit a second teamer in the game 10 The night before the big game was our 3rd teamer in the hotel pool , slipped on wet tile and pulled groin. 4. Our teamer who played little pond, and our starting point was Right Guard. He knew our base in 6 games, and this morning we had more than 6 this morning at the hotelLobby.

During the game, our portfolio heavy attack generally limited to 4-5 and limited our door step and counter-play. Do not worry about the other coaches do not play our best 3 players to tell. The funny thing was, we were under the "rule" mercy in the second quarter, but you know how decision makers are inexcusable. In 2002, we played a local team and was down 44-0 in 3rd Quarter after the game were very clear that they were missing # 54 and here with him, linebacker iswould be "a completely different game." In youth football, which seems to lose some bus or delusional or really puzzled about the impact a single player. In youth football, we all have almost the same constraints and the struggle with the same problems. We miss all the players that we have all played badly and we have all the players injured. What message is that for your team, if you listen to talk like that? They learn that football is a game, a player, and if you lose,Excuses.

Although it may be true that your team lacks size, speed, or missing or if you have half the number of players as the opposition is to develop the task manager and are used to select these benefits. If a coach insisted that all the problems mentioned above, either for the same offense and defense will last all the others in his league, has no chance of competing. He is free to choose its no longer compete for the teams on the field, with the other.

If everyone runs to the bottomis the same (most of them), the team with the best players will be at the center each week. Like the decision of the coach to run the program and the rules should be implemented, the program has produced the results that he has assumed the responsibility. I do not think it's a rule in any league that has X running offense, is the coaches choice. I do not think that a masked man holding someone hostage coaches office with a gun to his head, if the coaches do notX offense stated that the hostages will be shot. The scheme is the choice coaches, so he is responsible for a good choice or is there a poor man. Not all the systems and methods of practice are the same, some much better for a particular group and others for other groups. The key is deciding what is best for the group that is or as we did for the group of children, we usually have.

There are a number of programs and methods that can be used, if you're in a situation wherehave no size or speed. Competing against each one with a system similar to that of the enemy can not be the best choice, is still what we see in the world of youth football more often. Why not choose a system that is not required for many one-on-one blocking, or a huge amount of speed? Why not choose not to avail themselves of the great director? Why not choose a system that eats the clock and keep your little 'slow and the defense off the field? The reason is not because many coaches are too closelyto learn and share information about switching to something new, or refuse, when the way to do something different from what they run out in the past. But this election is their decision and their responsibility.

Now I say, you can take any group of players and make them a team 10-0, I say every team has its own unique field of potential. The problem is that few teams ever to play at the top of their range of potential. I have 10-12 teams in my organization, playing in a league with 60 +Team. Every year I have a potential for a quick look at the talent levels of teams are often like this: Find 4-6 to 7-3, 2-8 to 5-5, 8-2 and 10-0 is based. ranging from potential, which has a particular team. Our best-coached teams play almost always at or above its potential and our worst coached teams play on the ground of potential coverage, regardless of age group or team they are assigned.

My first coaching coaching youth was the position of football in a league with a"Blind" to. They chose players from two factors, birth date and terms. They did not know the names of the players or something else to do and blind for the most part. One might think that a very even playing field would be created, nor a team, dolphins or has won the championship every year and finished second. As the team was able to come, so "lucky", every year when we all had the same level of talent as a result of a proposed blind? It is interesting to note that my last year in this league, the Dolphins coachingStaff transferred to other interests and the new coach failed miserably, finishing in last place.

Would not make sense to say that the reason the team had done so well in the past, because of great coaching him? Or have they just been lucky each and every one of the five years that I coached against them? However, rarely, if ever you hear a coach say, "I came out coached," it cited the litany of excuses. The perennial losing trainer chalk is always lucky in the draw orPlayers. Because this is be done differently, he did a good job. He is everything to do with luck, it means that the poor guy was just unlucky enough to not want the winning lottery ticket. It is often this kind is the green-eyed jealousy, so that this successful coach denigrated for trying to bring them down to his level of stack with the supposed added value of the winning program has over his. These guys are not very funny, and rarely overcome something meaningful in life. They arethose who take care of what others are doing, instead of controlling what they can control their teams.

In 2004 I started a new program in a rural area near Hickman, Nebraska. Existing programs for youth often Fielded teams of 40-60 players on a team. Four years ago, when I arrived, had won a total of 4-5 games. My thought was to have more players, the better the chances of finding that star, which would lead the team. I was told all my winnersTeam has done in Omaha would have no role here, this was a basketball and the city of cross country.

My first years, we formed a group of 24 children, of whom only 2 had been made before, and they were bench warmers for their old team. At the age of 8-10, we had more than 100 kilograms of only 1 player and I had eight 13-year-olds. Our whole backfield for 8 years and my whole team was down 2 children are rookies. My personal trainer is just a coach who coached football before. We were a mixtureCrew and truly in a league of teams that had all been fighting for 10-20 years. Slowly, but surely better, and we ended up 11-0. We, the children played in every game and we cut anyone.

The next two years, while many of the players moved to the earlier series I have been with the team and we went 12-0 and 11-1, "Charity Case" about 80% of our opponents. Why the difference in the results? Arrangements and priorities.

While many mistakes people play a crucial role in lossGames, that this error leads to player? Suppose that a team lost and there have been errors of fundamental importance that a team containing the offensive jump, the poor fight in the open field and too many negative yardage plays. The coach is not just for the rules, make decisions, but also time and practice methods of priorities for the implementation of the development of skills used responsibly. If a team is a problem with the snap count, the easy to solve, go count the number at any time and inMake sure the other team does not break the bank, have a "non game" in the place where your players to do nothing but pull the other team offside. Count Don Markham at Bloomington High School in California set a national record score of 880 points in a season of 14 games with the same simple click. As regards the fight against the open field, maybe the coaches spend his valuable time, instead of wasting a lot of time with the CAL practice, drills, agility, conditioning scrimmaging or continuousWork on open-field tackle. Many of the games have been negative yardage exacerbating the divisions and running in a few more call to be denied. There are countless ways to address these types of problems.

If a team is not bad, should respond to one? Tyrone Willingham said, those of us participating in the Nike Clinic in Chantilly, Virginia, which take account of the coach responsible for his bad side, too. Coach was very impressive, as he carefully designed so that the dollarshould not stop with the coach. E 'coach that selects the rules and sets priorities for and select a player and coach to delegate tasks. It should deflect the responsibility of the coach to accept the blame and harassment of his players and coaches. So publicly, which is responsible, he does in private is private, but you work to ensure that coaches and players to understand their role and what he must do to correctProblems.

What do you teach a great lesson, a young man who did not see anyone, they admit that they failed to take responsibility and then repeat it in place a plan to ensure the same things. In the last 64 games of my teams have lost twice, both times the fault was not with me in preparing the week before or the management of the game. On both occasions, I have the players was not my fault, and because I also had all in favor of the person whose fault was that we lost the match, whichall about me.

I have to tell them what would we do differently to make sure we do not make these mistakes in future. However, I can safely say that during the course we have won more than a game against much bigger and more talented team of us. I hope the kids learned something about taking responsibility and making excuses vacuum serves only to soothe the ego of the loser and got late real progress.

Last season, learned a great lesson of my coaches. Before ourThe loss in 2006, I told one of my assistants, to see how our kicker did before the game. Our kicker was somewhat 'spotty past few games, but it was very good was the beginning of the year. I told him that if he looked strong and stood at 66% of his kicks in practice, it would be our point more, which is worth 2 points for the connection. During pre-game coach told me that he makes about 60% or thereabouts, and the wind was negligible. I asked what he thought of coach we need to do, "he said to occur. I agreed and recorded when wefirst TD, we kicked and missed. The game ended in a draw and we lost on the last play of the game in OT. I never mentioned the football, the coach said: "I'm sorry," I asked "What?". I told him that I decided if we wanted to push it or not, and I had made a series of errors in the game and coaching others only during the week of preparation, the decision and my guilt.

The next few weeks we had a backup defensive end, starting a game due to injury. This reader askedSnake-off pages 4 times. The reason was off-line pages, because the coach himself has been at the defensive end of the stick as a signal reference point. The only problem was the box was very marked and the mark down was often absent. The coach apologized for the teams and players publicly after the game, the responsibility for the players off-line pages. The next week, he made sure that these players were actually trained for the next game. I was so happyEvents, as I have won every championship.

Can a team of well trained and finished 2-9? Sure, but it is very rare. You can make a "perfect storm" situation 1-1000 have "perfect storm". The problem is that I see people go 1-10, 2-9, 3-8 years after the year with the same tired old system and foolish priorities, systems and priorities decided by the coach. The incredible thing is the high school level, many of these children to maintain employment opportunities and the recycling of others --Schools where they are exactly the same.

If coaching did not matter, and it was Jimmy and Joe, there would need coaches. It 'amazing to people like Don Markham and Dr. John Ward may be found loose on the program after the loss of the program and enable each and every one of them. N. five-year plans that are playing on an 0-fer to the District or a government bond. The team of Don years has established the national scoring record and won 14 games last year as part of anotherTrainer won 1 game and scored only a handful of points! Dr. Ward is the same thing with a long list of unhappy, he has toured the programs, and both deal with crimes that are at odds with little wing Wing Single room and done.

The next time you hear a lament coach and ask him what is making excuses to fight the alleged apology. I ask him whether his plan everything will be better and we hope that the tale of football is better football team next year. Whata great plan, because if this plan fails, you can with your finger on the fairy of football, instead of a point.

If your team is playing well, give credit to your players and coach second, when your team loses or plays badly the right thing to do and take personal responsibility. It's not a dog, "Guy ate tasks'. If your team loses does not make excuses, the other team, whose players and coaches of the loan. There can be a teacher of a computer allows an excuse. Do not worry about theThe opposition, is to make the best of your team, your players will be better for them to 10-20 years.
