Welcome to the Football Help Desk!
We hope you find everything you need to help you be a better coach, administrator or even just a football parent. Our mission at the Football Help Desk is to 'help coaches help kids'. We believe that football is the greatest sport in the world today when it comes to teaching young men important life lessons about discipline, teamwork, responsibility, accountability and hard work. But the only way our children can learn all that football has to offer is by playing and participating and that requires coaches. And unfortunately, coaches don't come preprogrammed with all the football knowledge required to field a successful team or program. That is where we come in. We can help you strengthen a variety of areas within your program from offenses and defenses to practice plans to parent letters and program policies.
You can find many wonderful offensive playbooks and defensive manuals for sale on this site but the most crucial information you will find on this website is the free stuff on our different 'articles' pages. On those pages you can download the 'Dominant Offensive Line' manual that is the foundation our playbooks are built around.
Here at the Football Help Desk, we believe that Offensive Football revolves around your Offensive Line. Proper blocking schemes, techniques and skills will make your offense a success and the lack of these things will doom you to fail no matter what formation or offense you choose to run.
The same thing holds true for Defensive Football. Most defenses are technically sound and fundamentally solid. Obviously, different defenses approach the game in different ways and each coach will have to find the defense that most accurately reflects what he wants to do on the field. But the overall success of your defense will always hinge on the fundamentals, techniques and tackling ability of your players.
By the way, don't forget to go and sign our Guestbook so we can add you to our mailing list. When we get enough people on the mailing list we plan to send out a quarterly newsletter full of football coaching tidbits and articles that everyone can use.
This website is always under construction so please check back often as we hope to add content as often as we find stuff we feel will help you be a better coach.
