FirstDown PlayBook Youth Football & Flag Football Help

Every year busy parents and coaches have a ton of youth football playbook and flag football playbook questions. It could be youth tackle football or it could be youth flag football. They just want a youth football playbook that helps them teach.

It’s harder than you might think. So hard in fact that folks often get duped into purchasing something with little or no value. We are FirstDown PlayBook and we promise you that you will not find a youth football playbook or flag football playbook better suited to help you.

However, today we want to just approach it differently. We are going to give you 5 questions to ask yourself (or anyone) before you spend your hard earned money on a youth football playbook or a flag football playbook.

5 Questions To Ask Before You Pay For A Youth Football Playbook

1. Can I See Your Football Playbook Before I Buy It?

If someone asks you to pay them money before you can actually take a free trial on their website, run and run very fast. Anyone can throw up 8 or 9 plays on a pdf and ask you to assume that there is a lot more where that came from. If they are not hiding anything, they will offer you a free trial to look at the youth football playbook or flag football playbook you are purchasing.

2. Who Draws These Plays? What Is Their Experience Level?

If you are not careful, you will be buying your youth football playbook from someone with less experience than you. Kids get hired to do these things. This is particularly true with youth flag football playbooks. It’s pretty easy to draw up 5 players with a variety of lines for routes. At some point you will be stuck teaching this to young wondering and wandering eyes. Make sure player assignments and coaching points are included with every play too. Experience counts.

3. How Many Plays Are There? Do You Have Defenses Too?

Okay, that’s two questions in one, but they are very important. The number of plays is important but maybe more important is “How are they organized?” Do you have Jet Sweeps? How can I find what I need for MY team? Let’s face it. Sorting through 75 plays with no rhyme or reason defeats the purpose of…saving you time. Always remember that defense is part of what you will teach too.

4. Can I Edit Your Youth Football Playbook & Make Wristband Sheets For my Players?

Every year busy parents look for something to help them and they have a ton of youth football playbook & flag football playbook questions.

This is more than a big one. What good is a youth football playbook if you can’t edit the plays to fit them for your youth football team? At some point you are going to be communicating with 8-9-10 year olds. Your chances at success will be largely attached to your ability to show them what you want them to do. The ability to easily print wristband sheets will save you sleepless nights.

5. Who Do I Call When I Get Stuck On A Saturday Morning At 9:30?

Above all, be sure to ask this question. Customer support is a bit of a mythical thing these days. We know because people usually faint when we call them back…on a weekend. If you are buying a pdf that is just a document that you cannot edit, use to coach your team ,or even ask questions about…buyer beware.
