We are changing the structure of our organization next year, and we will be having a 7-9 year old division for tackle football. We are trying to decide how many, and what plays to use for this age level. Any suggestions?
Coach, the Fellow Youth Coaches threads in this forum has some good suggestions. Tomahawg talks about a modified single wing, we had a team in our Pee-Wee division (8-12) year olds that ran what sounds like a similar offense and went undefeated and won the championship. They'd put a tailback 4 yards or so behind the center, with another back behind the guard and a double wings or move one wing out to flank. The tailback would get in a 3 pt stance, the center would snap it at his ankles, and they were off running off tackle, sweep, a reverse to one of the wings, or what looked like a sweep until the TB stopped and threw the ball to a guy who was often wide open. Very effective and simple.
Check with Tomahawg, I'd bet he has some good ideas.
