2007 Little League Playbook

Alright, just wanted people's opinions on what other plays I should put in. I have a stud QB, three short, fast, but small running backs. I play power football only. What other plays should I put in?

Re: 2007 Little League Playbook

I know you've spoken about coaching Pee-wees before, but give us a little more background. Age group? Catching ability? How fast do these kids grasp? Is everyone eligible? Does your league allow for motion?

With a stud QB, you should be able to throw the ball a ton, especially with fast RBs. A little play action will certainly freeze the defense...especially if you pound the ball a lot.

Re: 2007 Little League Playbook

If you like power football then a great set up play would be trips left with a single FB in the back field. Spread out the defense and then run the 42 BLAST at them. If they don't check out of 8,9 in the box, throw the ball to one of the three options on either side.

Re: 2007 Little League Playbook

reverses and roll outs. pulling guards. options. the kind of stuff that other pee-wees aren't prepared for.

Re: 2007 Little League Playbook

I always found the TE pop pass to be a pretty consistent play good for two point conversions and such.

Just hike, throw, catch. Can't get any more basic than that.

Re: 2007 Little League Playbook

The single back play action pass to the TE works for me every time in Madden 08. Obviously with your power running game already established this play should work. You have the game I think so Im sure you know what Im talking about. Play action roll the QB out to the right and the TE should be running an up and out towards the sidelines. Throw it to the outside shoulder and he's good.

A QB sneak is MIA along with some more inside running plays. Kids that age have lots of energy, but still do tire quickly. If you keep them running outside all of the time then you will wear them out along with the defense.

If you have 3 quick runners then only keep 2 in the game and rotate all 3 in and out. For example each back will have 2 plays on, and 1 play off. This keeps your backs more fresh. The running back rotation also provides a means for getting the play into the QB so he doesn't have to trot to the sideline.

A few passing plays do not hurt either. Remember that most kids who play football on the sandlot or the back yard pass the majority of the time; give them a chance to show what they can do. I would put a quick passing game in there that is based on a quick 3 step drop and 3-5 yard patterns. Only 3-4 routes are necessary and your SE's and TE's can just mirror each other. It is as easy as 1-2-3-4 and does not require you to change your formation.

1. Out
2. Slant
3. Fade
4. Hitch

I can go on all day so just PM me if you are interested in anything else I have to say, or if you want to say "no thanks you are an idiot". Either way, I hope I have helped a little.

Edit. I didn't say anything about Play Action because it had already been addressed.

Re: 2007 Little League Playbook

Thanks for all the ideas guys.

I've been doing this a few years now and there's a few things I've realized about coaching little league football:

1) Playaction doesn't work on little kids. They're not looking for the ball normally, they're just blindly running through holes up the middle hoping the ball carrier goes through one of them.

2) They can't grasp positioning in blocking. Last year I had different blocking schemes and they got too confused. This year I simplified things with the Wishbone and just made them block straight on.

3) Passing plays are tough because kids at that age can't form a pocket or protect the QB for very long. Even with the QB we have, he can't run around in the backfield forever. We need a lot of short routes.

I coach kids 11-13, and we had our first practice in pads yesterday and all the leads worked as well as the end-around.

We ran the end-around a lot last year and it was a TD half the time. Misdirection DOES seem to work great in this league.

I really like this idea as well. We haven't installed trips yet, but we do have a motion split left and split right.

This has helped me in my previous coaching adventures. Spread the field out a bit and if they don't check out of 8-9 in the box, throw a quick slant to a receiver. Next time they see the formation, they WILL check out and then you hit them with the power run up the gut for a big gainer.

Re: 2007 Little League Playbook

Only problem is that I'll REALLY be counting on our offense to get some push up front. The good news is, if the RB makes it to the second level, he's gone.
