Football Tips: Selecting an Offence

Let's face it, if you're looking for the perfect offence that you can implement for your youth football team, there are points you need to consider. I'm not saying that there aren't any good youth football offence's out there that aren't successful. What I'm saying, and have been saying, is that football player personnel and the coaches' knowledge and ability to teach the offence is the key to any youth football offence. Whether you want to run out of an I-formation, single wing, or double wing offence you need to consider what type of players that you have on your roster and go from there.
As a coach there are a lot of youth football offence systems that you can select from and there is good information available for you to obtain, but in the end, your player personnel will determine what kind of youth football offence you will be able to run successfully.
Things to consider would be your player's athletic ability and the number of athletes you have on your roster, the type of offensive linemen you have, your quarterback's ability, your experience, your size, etc.

These are static factors you cannot change and need to consider in implementing your youth football offence. The main point is don't expect them to flourish in an offence that they don't have the tools to thrive in. Build an offence that takes advantage of their strengths!
