In 2011 I got forced into coaching a team mid season. It was a 10 year old team that got utterly destroyed. A quick and hard lesson that no matter how much i could play the game it did not help trying to coach a group of 10 year olds.  After the season I was determined to NEVER go through that experience again.  I did research and found Dave Cisar's system and ordered it.  It seemed strange to me but I committed to using it as I got invited to be a head coach the next season.  I got major kick back from the Dad's that helped me but I stuck with it.  I had no idea the level of success we would have.  Here is a list of each season...

2012- 11 year olds...Went 7-0 in the regular season and lost in the first round of playoffs.  Attended a postseason tournament and destroyed the competition winning the tournament.  (9-1)
2013- 12 year olds... Went 9-2 winning a Ute Conference Championship (9-2)  Our B team also won the Championship.
2014- 13 year olds... Went 9-3 winning a Ute Conference Championship  (9-3)
2015- 14 year olds... Went 11-0 Winning a Ute Conference Championship  (11-0)
2016- 13 Year olds (took over a team that had only won 1 game in 2 years)... Went 6-4 losing in the first round of the playoffs  (6-4)
2017- 10 Year olds (took over a team that only won 1 game the year before)... Went 6-4 losing in the first round of the playoffs.  Attended a post season tournament and won the tournament.  (8-4)
2018- 8 year olds... Went 7-4 winning a Ute Conference Championship  (7-4)

7 years making the playoffs every year.
4 Championships  (5 counting the B team that worked with us and ran the same system)
2 Post season tournament Championships

A total record of 59-18

It wasn't just learning plays.  The material was top notch in educating how to be a successful coach regardless of the system.  We built a culture that literally changed the kids.  It has been amazing. The system works at every age level for youth football against top level competition.  I highly recommend it.
