Finger Lakes Youth Presidents, Coaches and Officials Interpretation Meeting
The date for the Fingerlakes Youth Presidents, Coaches and Officials interpretation meeting (mandatory) will be held at the Phelps American Legion on Thursday, August 10th at 7pm.
Recent Question/Discussion - Coaches on the field during a contest I would like to see penalty administration/enforcements consistant to High School rules.
1st Offence - Warning
2nd Offence - 5yd penalty
3rd Offence - 15yd penalty (1st unsportsmanlike)
4th Offence - 15yd penalty (2nd unsportsmanlike - coach disqualification)
If an official runs into a coach that is on the field of play or any sideline penalty is deemed to be flagrant, the referee will immediately enforce an unsportsmanlike foul and "possible" disqualification. A second unsportsmanlike foul is always a disqualification.
Sideline restricted area. Coaches, trainers, statisticians, players, are not to be in the restricted area at the snap. However, at this level this rule is a gray area for officials depending on existing sideline decorum. I would like to discuss this at our meeting then be sure that our officials are also clear on our conversation.
Football PodCasts
  • Stacks in the 33 Stack Defense| FBCP S05 Episode 16

    Fri, 13 Sep 2019 09:30:00 +0000The 33 Stack Defense is one of my favorites. Fast. Aggressive. Attacking. Simple. The Stacks are a big part of that.

    The 3-5-3 Defense, Georgia Military style, was the first defense I ever installed on my own. I?ve loved it ever since. Even when running other fronts as a base, the 3-3-5 Defense (or 5-3, or any combination of letters and numbers you want) has always been available as a change-up in our package.

    This episode of The Football Coaching Podcast breaks down the feature that makes the defense unique. The stacks. It?s a great look at the concepts that are central to our 33 Stack Defensive System at Joe Daniel Football, and what you should look out for as a stack defense coach. Check it out!

  • Unbalanced Single Wing from The Pistol Power Offense | FBCP S05 Episode 15

    Thu, 05 Sep 2019 09:30:00 +0000The Unbalanced Single Wing is a great offense. What if we could use the concepts and formation with our existing System?

    A few years ago I sat down in a Glazier Clinic that Rick Darlington was presenting. Coach Darlington is a Single Wing guru from Florida and an incredibly entertaining speaker. I was just there to learn something I didn?t know and be entertained.

    What I got was a lot more than that. It sparked a few ideas. I realized that the plays being run in the base package (which does NOT involve any ?Spinner? plays) were straight out of our Pistol Power Offense System.

    Not long after that, I was adapting the Unbalanced Single Wing formation to the Pistol Power Offense System. That became the centerpiece of our very successful short yardage and 2-point conversion package.

    In this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, I?m sharing how that System was created with you. Plus you can download the Unbalanced Single Wing in the Pistol Power Offense play sheet up by entering your email up above here.

  • Using Pre-Practice in Your Practice Plans | FBCP S05 Episode 14

    Thu, 29 Aug 2019 09:30:00 +0000Pre-Practice periods can be extremely valuable in your football practice plans. But you need to use them right.

    Pre-practice has been a huge difference maker for practice planning, but it only works when you use it right. That means educating yourself, the rest of the coaching staff and your players on the purpose and execution of the pre-practice periods.

    This is a great place to get extra work. To steal practice time, without wearing down your players. Non-contact drills, reviewing and reinforcing foundational football skills.

    Check out this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast to learn all about how you can use Pre-Practice to make your football team better this season.

  • Group Football Drills for Low Numbers| FBCP S05 Episode 13

    Thu, 22 Aug 2019 09:30:00 +0000Group Football Drills can target a specific area and clean out all of the noise around it. Plus you don?t need as many players.

    This episode was planned for several weeks into the future, but it needed to be moved up. These group football drills can do wonders for a lot more teams than even I knew.

    Recently I asked coaches to tell me what is biggest problem their team was facing right now. No surprise, but a huge percentage of those responses revolved around needing more players. And wondering how to get a good practice with their small numbers.

    These group drills can benefit any team. During the podcast I talk about how I?ve used the drills on a team with over 150 players in the program. But they?re also a critical part of coaching in a small school where 11 on 11 team is not always an option.

  • Air Coryell! 1983 San Diego Chargers Playbook Breakdown | FBCP S05 Episode 12

    Thu, 15 Aug 2019 09:30:00 +0000Time to take a look at a classic Air Coryell Playbook. An offense that brought the passing game to prominence in the NFL.

    Don Coryell and the San Diego Chargers lit up the NFL in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The Air Coryell passing tree is something everyone has heard about in our coaching journey.

    Taking a step into the past, I?m going to investigate the 1983 San Diego Chargers playbook featuring the Air Coryell passing game. Spoiler alert: passing has come a long way.

    The Buck Series is everybody?s favorite, but the Belly Series can be deadly for Wing-T Offenses. We?re breaking the Belly Series down with a Wing-T Novice and a Wing-T Expert on this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast.

  • Coaching Overhang Safeties and Outside Linebackers | FBCP S05 Episode 08

    Mon, 22 Jul 2019 07:15:36 +0000The performance of your Overhang Safeties in your defense is critical to your success. No matter what front you?re running, here?s how to coach your force defenders.

    It?s one of the most requested topics that I get for The Football Coaching Podcast. Two years ago, we broke down coaching the overhang safeties in Episode 209. Time to do it again?

    Start off with understanding the critical Umbrella Principle. It?s how your players understand run fits and how they fit into your defense. Then we?ll step through the Alignment, Stance, Keys and Assignments for your Overhang Safeties and Outside Linebackers. And top it off with the drill package for refining those skills.

    Thu, 11 Jul 2019 09:30:00 +0000When your Running Backs are doing a great job blocking for your team, the offense starts clicking. Here?s how to get it done.

    Running Backs spend a lot of their time working on ball handling and jump cutting. Making moves and maybe even catching a pass or two? but there?s one skill they better get good at.

    Run game or passing, coaching up your running backs blocking technique is going to be critical for the success of your football team. Here?s a deep look at the technique of blocking for running backs, with a Coach Simple, Play Fast take on the position.
