The Morris County Youth Football League is the most dumbed-down I've coached in.  It seems the restrictions or other kiddie provisions they apply at a given age level match those of players 1 year, sometimes 2 yrs., younger anyplace else I was familiar w, if they match anyone's.  With the 9Us (Clinic level), they allowed 2 coaches on the field for each team during play; I've never heard of anywhere else allowing more than 1.  This year I'm coaching 10Us (Super PeeWee), and they still allow each team 1 coach on the field, something I've never heard of w players that age.  But maybe it does exist elsewhere, hence my poll to find out.

Also in the 10Us, they don't allow blitzing until the ball's outside an OT position -- or maybe it's until the ball's outside the FBZ, because otherwise maybe super-mega-dilly G-T splits!

Our league allows coach on the filed for 5,6 & 7...5 & 6 is flag, 7 is first year tackle...

None of them suck, they just haven't found what the kid is good at yet.

In our league, they allow 2 coaches on the field for Tiny Mites (5-7) all season. For Mitey Mites (larger 7's, but mostly 8 & 9's) One coach on the field for the first three games of the regular season, then none thereafter. By Jr. Peewee (10/11), none at all, except for scrimmages, which are practice anyway.

Our Org.....one coach allowed on the field for 2nd grade (8U).  3rd grade (9U), one coach allowed on the field the first game of the regular season, then none the rest.

We are allowed up to two on the field for our 5-6-7 division. That is our youngest and is flag. 8-9, our โ€˜freshmanโ€™ division and our first years of tackle, there are no coaches on the field.

I absolutely would.
Would it make it easier on me?  Absolutely.  But it is setting the kids up for failure IMHO.

The year i helped coachs 7s, 1 coach was allowed on the field all season. After game 1, we had a scrimmage with with cross town club to experiment with sideline coaching.  The kids loved it, saying "this is real football"

We didnt step out on the game field for remainder of the season

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

Bob, I'll ask you the same question:  What diff does it make whether they allow coaches on the field, how many they allow, or whether you stand on the sideline, or not?  Don't like the rule?  Have your coaches stand on the sideline.

Well, there's no point to standing on the field if it doesn't give you an advantage.

It actually makes no difference to me as a thing in itself.  I just use it as an indicator that the MCYFL treats the players as if they were 1-2 yrs. younger than other leagues do.  (The comparison in exact yrs. isn't precise, because MCYFL uses an Aug. 1 age, while where I previously coached used May 1 and AYF used June 1 IIRC.)

In 2014 when I coached in a 7-9 YO div. that newly allowed a coach on the field, HC Miguel chose to coach from the sideline because he thought that was an advantage.
