Once again i'm sorry for posting almost everywhere but it seems i'm doing something wrong. I'm an italian coach who wants to improve his skills nad knowledge and would like to receive, if possible, some material (video, manuals, drills etc) to help making me a better coach.

I 'd like to start summarizing my program at the start of camp in Late July. Beside the actual football activity which will take place as allowed by CIF in California, we will get together as a team as often as possible. I would especially like to create a camp like attitude as it builds great team chemistry and bonds between everyone in the program. This comes with a great amount of parent involvement in terms of fund raising so that the camp can operate. After one multi-team scrimmage and pre-season game, we will move into the season, focusing on values, competition, and winning a championship. We will practice four days a week, with Thursdays being walk through followed by team dinner, and Saturday being weights and film. All coaches are required to be present.
When the season comes to an end, hopefully in early December, the guys will have the rest of the month off. If for some reason it ends early in November, we will get in the weight room for instructional lift, 3 days a week. January is where off-season activities will begin. We will get in our "heavy lifting" 4 days a week. After school they will have a 45 minute study hall, then head to the weight-room for an hour. We will also run our Character and Leadership Academy once a week after school the days we don't lift which will be Wednesdays, for 30 minutes. After the Academy, we will get out and run for an hour and work on movement. There will be three different weight programs will install and divide them into 3, 6 week programs. We will test in the the beginning and test again in May right before we start Spring football. Spring Football lasts about three weeks where the players will still be lifting before practice. There is a two-week break between the second and third weight programs because of Spring Break. (*Any player who is in another sport must play the other sport. Being involved in additional sports are encouraged).
After Spring FootbalI, players are given the choice to lift on their own time, but instead are required to attend study hall as end of the year finals approach. There will be at least one assistant either running study hall or the weight room. The head coach will run whichever is leftover. We will also be actively communicating with the booster club and parents for fund raising purposes to begin preparing for the upcoming summer and season. Coaches are highly encouraged to take part in all off-season activities but will be required to meet as a staff once a month to discuss, progress, personnel, and general approach to the up-coming season. I also will schedule a coaches retreat, which is very informal but gives us, as coaches, more of a chance to bond and create chemistry.
In San Diego, every sport is required to have a dead period. Ours, by choice, takes place in early June. So when players return that third week of June, the weightlifting continues, and is tailored more towards low weights and high volume. Agility and speed are added to the daily workouts. As many coaches as possible are encouraged to take part in summer conditioning. We will participate in 7-on-7 passing league games and also participate in any passing league tournaments preferably out of the city to provide a team building experience. In the two weeks leading up to the beginning of camp, we will test all our maxes in two days, then the remaining two, we will go over kicking game and practice procedures. This is mainly to walk through what practice and drills will look like so guys know what to expect for camp.
The guys will get a week off and away from any physical work the week before camp so as to make sure everyone's paper work is complete to practice and hand out gear. This is also, the week to reintroduce the coaching staff to the parents as this is the week of the team luau/parent meeting.
