Youth Football Defense Can Bite A Coach

By FirstDown PlayBook on May 29, 2021

Coaching youth football defense is so underrated. So much is made of youth football offenses and when most youth coaches sign up for the job they envision coaching offense. What ends up bitting them square in the and getting them embarrassed is defense.

The hard part about coaching youth football defense is adjusting to formations so that your players have a chance. The easy part is understanding to what your opponent is and is not capable of.

We take all of this into consideration when we draw up your football defenses here at FirstDown PlayBook. We try to make sure you are in a sound look but yet not covering “ghosts”.

It’s not just the detailed diagrams either. Yes, we fit your defense up against multiple (6) formations but we also provide coaching points. With youth football, the coaching points are not for the players, they are for the coaches.

You don’t believe anyone could put this much detail into youth football? See it for yourself right here on our dime. How can we do this for no cost? That’s not the question. The question is how can you not take a free look?
