<School> <Mascot> Program Plan

The model for achieving and sustaining a high level of success in the <Mascot> football program The X’s and O’s are the easy part Fourth and one - go for it.

Program vs. Team
• The biggest decision the head coach can make is to treat the football operations as a program rather than as a team
– – That is, to take a long-term view of the football operations and not look at this next season as the only thing that matters When that decision is made, then everything will fall into place

A football program is like a company in that it has no end point, it continues long after the people involved today have moved on
– – A program can have any number of teams (projects, or seasons), but a team can belong to only one program The program has no time limitations and is not bound to any single time period (season), and the members belong to both the program and to the specific team(s) within that program A program view is that every decision is made for the program and that there will be multiple teams in multiple seasons, the things we do today will help us not only in this season, but those seasons that will follow

A football team is like a project, something that is done one time, to meet specific objectives, with a definite end point
– A team view is that everything is for the team we have this season, nothing else existed before this team, nothing is seen to follow after this team, the only relationships are those that interact with the team this season We know that there will be teams that follow this year’s team, and that we honor those teams that came before, but operationally, this team right now is the only team that matters

Program Plan Once the decision has been made to be a program rather than a team, the first order of business is to begin organizing as a program. The primary areas to consider include:

• Program goals, objectives, and strategies
– This defines the ‘look and feel’ of the football program

• Infrastructure
– Using the hard and soft infrastructure items to identify relationships related to the football program, and then build and enhance those relationships

• Operations
– How the day to day work of running the football program will be done

state • What I see for the offense. section. band. local businesses. league. Booster’s . special teams. excitement – Classroom • Expectations for the players as students – Community • Community service. school staff and administration. talking. vendors. working with parents. defense. family. student section. crazy. team attitude – Off the field • What the players do when they are not playing/in-season – Stands • What the stands will be like – full. I will then develop my vision for the team in these areas: – On the field • Goals and expectations for the team for wins and losses.Primary Responsibilities of the Head Coach • As head coach I am responsible for developing and communicating the Mission Statement and the Core Values of the program – These define the overriding principles under which we will operate the <School> football program • Once I have established the Mission Statement and Core Values.

recognize the benefits. and helps in the formation of good habits.Mission Statement Football offers tangible benefits to a young man because it requires him to develop will-power. teamwork. sportsmanship. leadership. Participate The <mascot> football program will bring student athletes together and enable each player to grow and mature by emphasizing the following actions in every aspect of the program: • We will build confidence. . self-esteem. and prepare him to be successful after <School>. self-control. clear thinking under pressure. memory. and a feeling of contribution within each person in our program We will encourage open and honest communication from all program members We will respect the dignity and diversity of each person on the program We will commit to program unity through strong leadership principles and trust in each other We will acknowledge our Core Values each and every day • • • • It is the mission of the <Mascot> football program to create an environment where each player will have the opportunity to play a part in these actions each day.

your words and deeds match each other. Our attitude cannot stop our feelings. One of the constants in leadership is sacrifice which is an ongoing process and not a one-time payment. they have to trust that the staff and I are also doing everything we can to enable them. To me loyalty includes values like honesty. The willingness to continue working toward something after the fun has left is dependent on the attitude of the player.Core Values Loyalty When you have loyalty. Sacrifice is the loss of the right to think about yourself. and trustworthiness. By developing leadership abilities in the players it will make us a better team. . but they can keep our feelings from stopping us. rights decrease. The more we invest in developing team leaders. accept responsibility. When the players see the needs of others as importantly as they see they own needs they can truly begin to reach out to others around them. When the players take the field I have to trust them that they will do everything in their power to perform their assigned task. Self-sacrifice A team cannot be successful if players think just of themselves. and the team. confront change. Courage The personal strength that enables a leader to handle fear. the greater our return. integrity. and be self reliant. not born. to be successful. perseverance shows that you have the persistence necessary to succeed. As responsibilities increase. take risks. leaders are made. make difficult decisions. Conversely. Leadership Although there are some exceptions. Perseverance No matter how hard a task is.

If no one laughs at your dreams. you're not dreaming big enough. If you're not going to make your dreams epic. why bother to dream at all? Scott Miller – Song "Say Ho" PROGRAM GOALS .

to achieve program success • For the hard work to be effective it requires substantial planning every year – Strategic planning is the formal consideration of an organization's future course necessary to support the program vision. it takes hard work. by a lot of people. in a lot of areas. All strategic planning deals with at three key questions: • "What do we do?" • "For whom do we do it?" • "How do we excel?“ • The result of the yearly planning will be the goals. objectives. and strategies for successfully achieving the vision .Vision to Reality • The implementation of the vision statement(s) will not happen by wishing.

Objectives. Strategies describe complex program functions involving multiple teams. objectives are precise Goals are intangible.R. An Objective can be achieved through one or more Strategies. 1954). A Goal will likely have several objectives. objectives are concrete Goals can't be validated as is. and/or school departments. and Strategies: Goals vs. objectives can be validated • • Goals – Goals are defined as all-encompassing statements about the general direction of the football program. There may be multiple Strategies to meet an objective. – Objectives – Objectives are defined as methods for attaining the football program Goals.Definitions • The language of planning is full of specialized terms. Objectives – – – – – Goals are broad.A. realistic and time-related (Drucker. These are the transition from vision to plan to action. .

However the largest/highest importance definitions are the following which identify the boundaries for the Goals. Actions must be taken in order to reach Goals. Strategies represent projects or initiatives designed to reach Objectives and to attain Goal(s). measurable.: specific. • Strategies – Strategies are defined as means for achieving a specific Objective. objectives are tangible Goals are abstract.T.M.

then start planning the plan • Program Plan – Use the “Is – Later – How” chart/concept as the model – Perform the “Is” review • Define the areas • Define the 1st level components of each area – Develop the Vision and Goals (V&G)– this sets the path for everything else – Develop the “Later” goals and objectives for the components.Planning the Plan • Initial steps – Decide to use a formal process for the planning – Decide how to plan the plan – Use the Program Plan as the foundation – Decide on a viable time frame. 3-5 years as an example – Once the commitment to use a formal process. compare to the V&G • If doing something does not support the V&G then it should not be done . and a schedule is set.

or will be part of a project . or task. the tasks that we will work on to meet the objectives • Where we see an “Strategy A” we will basically see a block of work. or actions that will need to be completed to support the program goals • A strategy will require – Time (when it will be done) – Task (what is to be done) – Talent (who will do it) • A project is a grouping of similar strategies so that there are not a lot of closely related activities going on – A project will have several strategies grouped together – A strategy with either stand by itself as a discreet activity.Overview of Strategies • Strategies are those things that we will act upon.

These would need to be redone for your program based on your vision. . These are just one possible configuration and should not be considered the only way to go on this. objectives.NOTE Everything listed from here on for the goals. these may or may not be valid for your program. and strategies is just an example.

the goals for the program should go farther than just wins and losses – The program can reasonably expect to have approximately 4%-7% of the total school population (~2. teachers.. staff.000. general area. & Apple Pie) • Those program goals that are not specific to any one area of the program.Areas for Program Goals • Since the <Mascot> football program interacts with so many aspects of the school. clubs working snack shack. etc. the impact to the school will be substantial and will interact with a wide range of the school operations • To support this wider set of interests the goals are divided into the following areas: – GMAP (God/Omnipotent Being. and the students and staff at <School> . band. but are generally considered to be good things to accomplish – Football • Goals that are specific to the football operations – Academic • Goals that support the educational aspects of the program – Community • Goals for building relationships with the community including the parents. 80-140) players each season – If we include cheerleading. administration.
