Coach Expectations
◊ Contact parents within 24 hours of receiving your final roster
◊ You are responsible to have contact information/waivers of all players at each game/practice
◊ It is important to be punctual, remember we are role models for our children
◊ Maintain a positive attitude
◊ Make it fun
-Regardless of whether it’s a game or a practice, football at the youth level should always be FUN
◊ Limit Standing Around
-This is a common problem with youth sports that ultimately turns kids off. Whether it’s a game, practice, clinic, or camp, we have designed all of our programs to engage every participant consistently.
Kids don’t attend practice to watch others play. Kids enjoy practices when they have fun and they experience an improvement in their overall skills. Many professional coaches put a major emphasis on fast paced and interactive practices that eliminate downtime.
◊ Everyone Plays at least 1/2 the game
-Football at the youth level should be an inclusive experience. The youth level of football should be an equal learning experience for everyone, whether it’s a game or a practice. A coach is a teacher.
A teacher/coach’s job is to raise the level of learning and skills of not only the most talented, but for everyone on the team, starting with the least talented. The NFL philosophy eliminates first, second, and third strings in both games and at practice.
◊ Yell Encouragement, Whisper Constructive Criticism
-Keep it positive. As a youth football coach you should never tolerate negative comments from your players, parents, coaching staff, and especially yourself. Kids realize when they have made mistakes. What they don’t need is to have that mistake compounded by negative feedback and comments. What they do need is feedback on how to correct the mistake supported by positive encouragement.
