2) It makes it hard to interchange players at different positions.  Players have to have the wrist coach for the specific position.

Why don't you just sub the wristband with the player?  It holds on just by elastic, right?  So just slap hands and slide the wristband off as you come off and on as you go on.

It’s not that big of a deal if you are only subbing one person from the sideline.

I have been in situations such as a back gets banged up, I have to move a linemen into the backfield to replace him and then a domino effect of moving 3 linemen around after that.  I have had to use timeouts to get things straight.  I also have players who wear more than one wrist coach so they can move around.

None of these problems are insurmountable, but they are cons to depending on wrist coaches.  These are also problems that I have to address.  The kids don’t have to worry about it.  I want my kids playing and not thinking, which means I have a lot more thinking during preparation and during games.

I stole this from some coach somewhere.  I don't remember from where or from whom.  But, it may be of some help to any coach that wants to use assignment based wristcoaches.

For the last 4 years I've tried to create a play language with 3 words of fewer total.  The jr high team I was with this fall completed this model for me as they used scheme for play calling not holes or numbers. 

 

Akron/zip - wide zone: school is to the left, mascot to the right. 

 

They destroyed this simplicity with almost west coast offense like play language. 

 

For my scheme going forward, it will be formation, scheme, motion.  Snap count is built into the plays. So plays to the right are on 2, plays to the left on color, pass plays on 1

I can explain it to you, I can't understand if for you.

Your tobacco bill would be bankrupting you if you coached the team I have the last couple of years.

She has been a trooper and is recovering well.

 

I have been doing more cooking, dishes and laundry than I have in my entire life.  I don't mind that as much as the grocery store.  That place is scary!  I certainly have a new found appreciation for all she has done to spoil me over the years.
