Youth Football Summer Season Planning

With spring camps completed and the summer upon us nows the time to start thinking about your up-coming football season. Depth charts should now be established with player evaluations completed and you should have a good idea who's penciled in to play at all positions. This includes your specialty spots, long-snappers, holders, returners, and kickers. So with training camp six weeks away you will have a general idea of where your players will fit in, and what positional spots you need the most help. Playbooks should be reviewed and tweaked, your season schedule and match-ups revealed, equipment inventory taken and new stuff ordered , and your training camp dates set.

All in all, you should be ready now at this point to "get er going"!

With the framework of this years team in place it makes it easier for you as the coach to get into your training camp as you will have a good idea where players will be fitting into positions. One of the funnest things in training camp are those pleasant surprises of who will show up unexpectantly that will impact your team. It doesn't happen a lot but when it does you'll be smiling.

Now that all is in place, sit back, relax, and enjoy the rest of the summer. You'll find that your mind will drift in and out of football daily, hourly,its natural as a football coach. Just don't get the fired up juices flowing, its too early! Relax, and enjoy the sun!
