The first step in organizing any program that you are taking over for the first time is to meet with the following people 1.Teaching Staff &Administration 2.Current coaches 3. Players 4. Parents 5. Booster groups and any one interested in improving the program. Once you have met with these groups you can begin to formulate the information you collected into your system. The next step is to introduce your off- season training program, We use the basic Bigger Faster Stronger program for our base lifting session and add more advanced movements as we progress. We will conduct our off-season training session four times per week for one hour. We offer an A.M. and P.M sessions to accommodate our multi - sport athletes or any athlete who must work after school. The next phase in implementing our system is to have have weekly coaches meeting during the off-season to evaluate our program and to make any additions or subtractions that need to be made. During these off season meetings we will prepare our offensive, defensive, and special teams philosophy and play books.The next phase in our program is our ten days of summer camp in which the state permits on field instruction between the dates of 6/1-7/31. During these camps we will install our base offense, defense and special teams schemes through the use of individual,group, and team coach periods. Our offense, defense and special teams approach is a very aggressive attacking style, we do this by running a quick paced run based offense that incorporates angle blocking for our undersized athletes. As far as defense we are an attacking multiple front defense and we will move, stunt, and blitz 90% of the time. Our approach to Special teams is very similar to our offensive and defensive approach in the fact that we are aggressive and like to take chances. The next phase in our program is our preseason practices which begin the first week of August and run for three weeks. We will have two practices per day in which we once again work in individual, group and team periods. We split the practices into an offense and defensive practice and we incorporate our special team into those schedules. We will have two scrimmages during the last week of two-a-days one is one Tuesday and the other is a live game simulated scrimmage on the Friday or Saturday night prior to the opening week of the season. The next step is our In-season approach, during the season we meet as a team on Saturday mornings to review film and lift and the JV team will play there game, as coaches we do all of our game planning on Saturday and Sunday is a family day.We present our scouting reports at a team meeting on Monday then we will have a walk through, on Tuesday we have defensive emphasis practice and on Wednesday we have offensive practice, Thursdays practice is a walk through and then we have a team meal and watch film.Friday is game night and then we begin the process over again on Saturday morning. The next phase is our off- season lifting phase which can begin thirty days after our last game and will run until the end of May.Once again we will test our athletes multiple times during this phase and they will lift four times per week A.M. and P.M. session are also offered during this time. In early January we will begin our Leadership seminars which are conducted biweekly on Wednesday during our school wide study hall.The lifting and leadership sessions will last until our students begin their end of year exams and then we will give them exam week off. The first week of summer we will start this process over again, we will make some changes as we are constantly evaluating our program and looking for ways in which we can improve. This 365 day system works well for us and we have found it to be conducive to our athletes.
