<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. band. section. team attitude – Off the field • What the players do when they are not playing/in-season – Stands • What the stands will be like – full. school staff and administration. talking. league.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. defense. vendors. working with parents. excitement – Classroom • Expectations for the players as students – Community • Community service. Booster’s . student section. 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. crazy. special teams. family. local businesses.

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.Mission Statement Football offers tangible benefits to a young man because it requires him to develop will-power. teamwork. and helps in the formation of good habits. and prepare him to be successful after <School>. sportsmanship. leadership. 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. memory. recognize the benefits. clear thinking under pressure. self-control.

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

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. and strategies for successfully achieving the vision . 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.

objectives are narrow Goals are general intentions.Definitions • The language of planning is full of specialized terms. Actions must be taken in order to reach Goals. There may be multiple Strategies to meet an objective.T.M.

Overview of Strategies • Strategies are those things that we will act upon. 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 will be part of a project . 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. or task.
