Youth Football Exercises

The answer may be the Single Wing Offense, it has helped many youth teams everywhere put up numbers like this. My own teams have 'mercy ruled" over 80% of our opponents in the last 6 seasons using this amazing offense. Our record in fall football for these teams was an incredible 62-2.

In 2002 We put the Single Wing in across the board with all four of our age 8-10 teams. Our coaches had zero experience running Single Wing yet we went a combined 38-8 that year and won 2 League Titles. The previous year we had had won 1 league Title and went a combined 19- 27. The following season our records were even better as we got better at coaching. Youth Football turnarounds do not have to take 4-5 years IMHO.

The best thing to do is get ahold of some youth single wing video of a well coached team and see for yourself. In 2001 I got ahold of Eric Strutzes State Line Comets video. Eric was a relatively young football coach and had not even played the game. His teams marched up and down the field with what appeared to be average youth football talent and average to small size. That sold me and then it was research and experimentation time.

There are countless coaches that have had great success right out of the gate with the Single Wing Offense including a bunch in my Testimonials page. But recent poll I asked the question of over 50 Single Wing Youth Coaches:

What was your teams winning percentage the first year you ran the Single Wing offense?

So over 53% of first year Single Wing teams in this poll won 70+ % of their games. Not bad at all.Only 23% had losing records.

Here are poll results for the question: How hard was it for you to install the Single Wing Offense the First Year?

Easy, NO problem-46%
Somewhat Easy- 33%
Average Level of Difficulty- 15%
Difficult- 5%
Gave Up Impossible- 5%

Simple, easy to put in and it wins, what more could you ask for?
