How do you call your offensive plays ? Do you have your QB come to the sidelines? Do you meet him a quarter of the way? Or do you use a wrist coach? The most effective way to call plays is with a wrist coach. The wrist coach will allow for plays to be delivered to your youth football quarterback quickly and easily.
Throughout my coaching years, I have managed the no huddle offense. Each player on the field has a wrist coach on their arm. Each series, or grouping of plays, is highlighted with a color and named with a number. For example, coach yells “RED 2”- the players will look at their wrist and read the play name that is highlighted “red” and is numbered 2.
Having all players utilizing wrist coaches can take your offense to a whole new level. Running a no huddle offense with every player having a wrist coach is a certain nightmare for youth football defenses. You will see opposing coaches burning timeouts and having troubles subbing players in and out. You will notice football youth players and coaches getting tired because of the up-beat no-huddle offense. The no huddle will also help conserve the energy of your quarterback. If the quarterback comes to the side line for every play it will eventually take a toll on him and he’ll tire. Figure this: it is at least 20-30 yards this kid will have to run back and forth from the coach to the huddle every play.
