<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

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. special teams. family. state • What I see for the offense. team attitude – Off the field • What the players do when they are not playing/in-season – Stands • What the stands will be like – full. band. defense. student section.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. talking. working with parents. vendors.

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. leadership. self-control. self-esteem. sportsmanship. and helps in the formation of good habits. 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.

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

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. by a lot of people. it takes hard work. 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. in a lot of areas.Vision to Reality • The implementation of the vision statement(s) will not happen by wishing. objectives. and strategies for successfully achieving the vision .

However the largest/highest importance definitions are the following which identify the boundaries for the Goals. Strategies represent projects or initiatives designed to reach Objectives and to attain Goal(s). A Goal will likely have several objectives.

Friday Night Lights • Build men of character .My Vision • It’s a football family • Build a football dynasty • Games become an event.

How to Implement the Vision • Loyalty Program .

Football Family • Each family has different parts. all working toward the same thing – The team is the same – number of separate entities that are working toward a common goal • Keep friends close • Be decisive in action • Absolutely loyal – Every Wed they gather all 3 levels and each HC hands out a Loyalty t-shirt to most deserving player at each level – Varsity players are Big Brothers to freshmen players • Card with 5 questions – Varsity player has to talk with the freshmen to answer the questions • Matched by positions • Keep things in the family – Loose lips cause problems .

Reward loyalty to the team .His Vision – Dynasty • Priority for success: – Defense • Spend ½ of practice time on defense – – – – Run the ball Special teams – work for field position No turnovers – field position and morale Weight room • Weights are changing. but there will always be a core group that are the team leaders – Loyalty Meetings • Wed after practice. getting much more specific. all 3 levels. • Emphasis on core work – Teach tackling • Teaches in shorts and t’s • Real measure of how well coached the team is – Adjust to personnel each season – Discipline • Discipline Drill (Speckman) – A get-off drill that requires mental discipline – Identify and work with the core group • Train everyone.

His Vision – Games are Events • Do whatever you can to make the games the event of the week
– – – – – Victory bell Tunnel Student section Sing school fight song after each game Green-White (Blue/white) Game
• • • • Between freshmen and JV Parent meeting before BBQ, lots of activities Pictures of younger kids in HS uniforms

His Vision – Character • A player with character is
– On time – Dependable – Loyal
• What does the last string player say about the coach and staff? • Dungee – Treat everyone fair, but don’t treat everyone the same
– Not everyone has the same conditions so things that work on John won’t work on Tim

– Works with others
• Community service

– Hard working – Leadership meeting with players
• Talk about other players, aspirations, goals

– His word means something

His Vision – Leadership • View of leadership has changed • Players do what they see, not what they hear
– Very often they have no male role model

• Staff – usually very little respect given • Must teach players how to lead • Positional Power vs. Relational Power
– Positional based on job title – Relational based on building relationships with others. How to build relationships?
• • • • • • Care about others Talking with them Going to other sport’s games Weight room – Sr’s with Frosh Swim Party’s Dinners

Ideas • Get teachers involved – For home games players give their white jersey to a teacher and ask them to come to the game – Contact the teachers. and ask for feedback on the players • Good stuff as well as bad • Program Perception – Take an honest look at the program and then add/change it • Ex: no profanity – Enhancing perception of the team • • • • • • Former players come back to talk to the team Coaches preach it in training T-shirts Jumping jacks – We-Will-Hit-You Slogans on walls Phrase kids that walk it . make yourself known.

2 wide receivers • This dictates a balanced response from the defense – Cannot gang up on the run game .Why The Spread (Blue) • It is a hybrid formation – Combination of the flexbone and the Run and Shoot • Gives the offense the capability. by alignment. to stretch a defense – Vertical .4 quick receivers – Horizontal .

Players • Fullback (B-back) – Aligns with heels 5-yards from tip of ball – Lines directly behind the QB – Not a wishbone fullback. but a tailback • Solid inside runner • Perimeter runner .

why do you think you should be able to do so now? • No explicit lyric in weight room or locker room or pre-game • No drinking or using drugs .Team Rules • No profanity – Swearing does not make you a man – It is the sign of a weak mind – You won’t be able to swear after starting work.
