Rank #1: QC 135 Cover 3 Variations.
Cover 3 can be a great base coverage, or compliment to more man coverages and pattern match coverages. Not all Cover 3 coverages are created equal. In today’s episode of the JDFB Quick Clinic, we’re looking at a variation on Cover 3 that is a bit of a Tampa 2 hybrid. We’ll look at the advantages and disadvantages of this variation of the coverage, against the run and the pass. Check it out to see if this is a good adjustment for your team!

Rank #2: How to Watch Game Film Like a Coach | QC Episode 161.
How do you watch game film as a football coach? Plenty of coaches are doing it wrong. Learning to watch game film is a little bit like training a muscle. You’re going to have to watch a lot of film, for a long time, before you’ll start seeing everything. You’ve probably heard not to watch football game film like a fan. Don’t just watch the ball. But if you go too far the other direction, you end up wasting a lot of time and not finding any useful information. This was a response to a listener question sent on Twitter.

I don’t remember the wins as much as I remember the kids that have gone on to be better players’Teaching Children & Keeping it Fun ‘The Intensity of Winning’ – This is measured by hard work. Hard work is a skill that can be developed. We are going to commit to dominating our opponent through hard work. #1 skill is footwork – Balance, pivoting. Get a low chair stance. Ripping the ball, sweeping the ball. 4-Line Pivot drill – they do it every day at practice. Lots of small-sided games. You get more touches with the ball if you are 3 on 3 vs. 5 on 5. Fun game: Passing tag – have to pass the ball and ‘tag’ someone. Stop, catch, pivot, then tag. Timed drill –team with the lowest time wins. Can do it with more than 5 per team. Every kid must have a ball! If you have 12 kids on the team you better have 12 balls!Best Stolen Idea Gene Durdin – Girls basketball coach at Buford H.S. in Georgia – taught Kevin:o The Breakfast Club. Ball-handling and shooting drills they do at 6 a.m. during the summer.o HUGE IDEA #1 - Pre-game warm-up – ‘How you warm-up is how you play the game.’ They start with high-intensity pass-catch drill. Then 4-corner pivot drill. Fast-paced, 6 or 7 drills. Everything together (take warm-ups off together.) Part of development is players learning how to prepare to win.Coaching Resources▪ I-practice builder – App that lets you build practice plan, and you can have video library.▪ Coaches Eye – Can break down video in slow-motion.

What does it take to be a winning youth coach? Listen in as Valeri Garcia shares stories and discusses her journey to becoming a successful youth sports coach.Garcia, a Program Advisor at UC Davis’s Student Academic Success Center, has known since about age eight that she wanted to coach. At UC Davis, Garcia conducts workshops based on Mindset, the book by Stanford University Psychology Professor and PCA National Advisory Board Member Carol Dweck, which emphasizes individual growth through effort, rather than reliance upon talent. Valeri was honored with the Positive Coaches Alliance Double-Goal Coach Award in 2013.Listen Now:Listen in ITunes: Itunes linkListen in Stitcher: Stitcher linkQuote'Stop trying to coach at a pre-college level - coach them at the level that they are right now.'Coaching your own kids Utilizing the concepts from Carol Dweck's book 'Mindset' has been big help - her girls know she will focus on their effort rather than be critical of their results A big compliment is she has had parents who don't know she has a daughter on the teamMy Cringe & ‘Ah-Ha’ Moments Valeri wishes she had started teaching the value of pursuing greatness and using their skills to win at a little earlier age - she was focused on effort, which was great, but she says she might have instilled a little more of the competitive part of the game a little earlier for her 12 year-oldsTravel Sports Valeri is struggling with what to do with her daughter who is becoming good enough to play for some higher level travel teams, but Valeri is concerned with the coaching mindset and philosophy on those teams. Common struggle - the most important thing is to do the research and understand the philosophy of the organization and coach before signing up!Teaching Children & Keeping it Fun To encourage aggressiveness - she rewarded them with effort points Always start with ground zero: you have to know where your athletes are with regards to knowledge - what do they know and what do they not know. You have to meet them where they are. HUGE IDEA #1: Great way to make sure you are teaching at their level: Try to teach one your assistant coaches to do a skill with their off hand: i.e. If they are right-handed try to teach them to throw left-handed. This forces you to break down the skill into it's most elemental pieces. Then add in variables a little bit at a time.HUGE IDEA #2: FUN GAMES THAT TEACH SKILLS: 1 - Last player standing - player bats with 2 strikes - if they hit it fair they keep going. If you strike-out you go play defense. Then you add complexity - they have to hit it to the grass, etc. Great game to teach the girls to play in pressure situations. 2 - Throwing accuracy - Kids weren't hitting their targets when throwing - so she put a ball on a cone at 1st base and they took turns throwing from shortstop trying to hit the ball on the cone. Then she said first one to hit she would give $1.Self-Confidence and teaching kids to achieve peak performance Positive Coaching Alliance: ELM tree - Effort, Learning, Mistakes Brush-off routines: One effective way to help kids brush off mistakes is for teammates to pick each other up: 'I'm ready, are you ready?'Connecting with and Impacting Kids Valeri sometimes gives homework assignments - involving things like John Wooden's pyramid of success Transferrable skills - Valeri understands and teaches the importance of teaching kids that being on this team will teach as much about life as it will about sportsThe One that Got Away Any game where the team does not play up to their potential They had one game where they had the chance to beat a team that was much better than them, and it slipped away. She wishes she had told them more - during the game - of how proud she was of them.Parting Advice3 questions to ask yourself at the end of the season: Did they learn something?

We are connecting with one of the true legends inside our game and also one of our most popular ABCA Convention speakers throughout the years: mental game pioneer Dr. Ken Ravizza of Heads-Up Baseball. Ravizza, who will be speaking at the 2017 ABCA Convention in Indianapolis, joins our podcast to discuss his reflections from well over 30+ years in baseball. Ravizza discusses where we stand today in our mental game training, with tremendous takeaways including his analogy of a chicken sandwich and truly appreciating 'the fifteen seconds between pitches'. Ravizza also calls for a return back to simply 'competing' on the field and moving away from feeling 'good' to play, plus we dive into the locker room and his work with championship college and MLB teams and players, hearing how the very best combat their fears on the field and between their ears.

Rank #1: PSSO S5E3: How To Run The Inside Zone.
This week’s podcast is all about the Inside Zone. In it I share my story about how I first had no clue running it and how much I have learned since then. That one season we ran one run play, the Inside Zone and even though, we barely knew how to coach it, we still went 5-4 and qualified for the Illinois High School Football Playoffs. I also have a special guest presenter, Cody Wilson, who shares how to number off players when blocking the Inside Zone and then gives an example of how to block it against a 3-4 front. If you want to learn more about the Inside Zone, check out this page here where you can watch this episode and also find out more about the brand new Inside Zone Course that we have just published.

Rank #2: PSSO S4E26: 5 Steps A Great Offensive Game Plan.
What is the most important resource you will need to rely on when building your game plan? How do you set up a winning Call Sheet and know what plays to run in your opening play script? This week’s podcast topic is on the A to Z of building an offensive game plan. If you have never seen one developed this way, you just might not believe the amount of work that goes into putting one together. Usually a team of coaches do it together in a few hours saving you, the offensive coordinator, an immense amount of time planning. I also talk about how to go about setting up your call sheet from your game plan and then what you can do if the team you are playing doesn’t do what you have anticipated them doing all along. This simple strategy of setting up a game plan has an in-game application that I will cover as well.
