The key to a consistent offense is execution.
Good execution comes with the repetition of plays in practice. All youth football plays need to be practiced several times each practice. The offensive linemen must understand their blocking assignments while the backfield must execute their assignments. Also, should a starting skilled position or lineman go down, backup players must know what they are doing. Time after time I see offenses fall apart when starting players get injured and backups have to come in.
Having a successful offense in youth football requires calling the right plays. If you call a sweep play, and the defense is stacked outside to defend a sweep- why waste a play and run into the defense? You have to call a play where the offense has the best chance for success. Have coaches watch the opposing defenses to see how they are reacting to your plays. Also, as the game begins have a coach write down their defensive alignment to your offensive formation. This will help you evaluate and attack the area of the defense which will give your offense the best chance success.
My team uses a great deal of no-huddle offense during games. This helps us tremendously with our offensive consistency as it allows us to call the right plays every time. We attack where we outnumber or outflank the defense. If you call a play make sure you have some kind of check out in case the defense is aligned to stop the play. The only time you get away with bad play calling is when you have a stud team or running back.
Tip: Do not call plays just to call them, call plays that will give your offense the best chance for success.
Have a good offensive system. Having an offensive series of plays is the best way to go in youth football. When you have a series of plays each play will set the previous play up. For example, with my Wing T Jet Series offense, our jet sweep is our bread and butter. Once a youth football defense starts overplaying the jet sweep it opens them up for our trap, power, counter and weak iso plays. If you have a good system of plays the defense will block themselves. Use your coaches, have them watch certain positions to see how they are reacting. This will allow you to know how to use their defensive aggression against them.
