We hear the reports and see the video all too often: youth coaches and officials assaulted, fights breaking out at youth sporting events, and parents and coaches losing control over what should be a child’s game. It doesn’t have to be that way. What we don’t see are the thousands of youth football coaches who do it the right way: teaching the game and the ethos of the game to children who love to play. Coaching youth football can be one of the most exciting, exhilarating, and rewarding experiences. It takes a tremendous amount of hard work, and an ability to communicate with other coaches, players, and parents, but there are few things to compare with watching young people compete and win, or learn lessons that will help them for a lifetime. Teaching the game of football goes far beyond the white lines, beyond the techniques of blocking and tackling. Along with learning the fundamentals of the game, young people learn teamwork, sportsmanship, responsible leadership, and the need to work hard and prepare to reach goals. To avoid being one of those trapped in a nightmare, a youth coach must master the ability to relate to both players and parents. Above all, a coach must communicate. It is important that parents trust the coach. After all, parents are submitting their child to a game that is, by its very nature, physically brutal. Parents need to trust that the coach will have the best interests of the team, and their child, in mind at all times. When those interests collide, parents need to know why a coach makes certain decisions, and how that will affect their child. Along with communicating with adults, youth football coaches must be experts in understanding and relating to children. Youth football players have very little concept of the actual fundamentals of the game. They see a college or professional game on television and see long passes, break away runs, or big hits and the thousands of people who cheer while players celebrate. This is far from the reality of the game. Coaches must be able to demonstrate and teach fundamentals. Big plays come out of the ability to be fundamentally sound, and being fundamentally sound takes hour upon hour of watching, listening, and practicing. In the NFL, and increasingly in college, success is defined by wins and losses. The bottom line is paramount. This isn’t necessarily different at the youth level; the bottom line is simply wider. Wins and losses are important, and no one wants to play for a loser. But, if a youth coach is successful, they create not only wins on the field; they also help to create joy in the hearts of children and parents, players who learn how to play and how to be leaders, and, most of all, a successful youth coach gives players the building blocks to be successful in life. About the Expert John Seagroves has taught and coached at the middle school level for over a decade in eastern North Carolina. He and his wife, Corrie, live in Rocky Mount. They have one daughter, Elizabeth, who is an outstanding student and athlete in her own right. He has coached football in four different school systems. In that time, his football teams have compiled a .784 winning percentage. He has led football, softball, and basketball teams to county and conference titles in the process. More importantly, he is proud of the overwhelming success his players have had in the classroom, many going on to study and earn college degrees at some of the most prestigious universities in the region. Mr. Seagroves would like to thank Coach Todd Brewer of Nash Central High School for his contributions on offensive philosophy for youth football and on how to establish expectations in your program. Coach Brewer and Mr. Seagroves spent several years coaching together, and much of the information in this book evolved from that partnership. HowExpert publishes quick 'how to' guides on all topics from A to Z by everyday experts.

Bear Bryant S Winning Ways

Like a young entrepreneur with nothing but an idea, the iconic Alabama football coach Paul “Bear” Bryant used his will and talent to escape hardscrabble poverty and invent himself as an American monument. His secret: He was able to learn from his mistakes, adapt to change, and earn the devotion of his players. Bear Bryant's life was football, and he once predicted that he would "probably croak in a week" if he ever stopped coaching. In an ending that no self-respecting scriptwriter would have concocted, Bryant died of heart failure at 69, just a month after announcing his retirement and 37 days after coaching his last game, a 21-15 victory over Illinois in the 1982 Liberty Bowl. In Alabama, the impact of his death was so great that three Tuscaloosa churches were needed to hold the 1,500 mourners at his funeral, and people lined the highway for 53 miles as the cortege traveled to the cemetery in Birmingham. President Ronald Reagan called Bryant "a hero who always seemed larger than life." New Word City, publishers of digital originals, contributes 10 percent of its profits to literacy causes.
