Football Practice Plans

Football practice plans can make the difference between an ok season and one that everyone will remember for years.

Youth Football Practice Plans

This Ebook practice plan will help you:

Instill confidence in coaches and players by working with a proven system.  Learn from a coach who has “been there and done that.” It’s like listening to words of wisdom from a head coach, a position coach, an offensive coordinator, and a defensive coordinator.

Identify the coaching concepts to address and the order to address them in – the right stuff at the right time.  Brilliant!

Generate team improvement rapidly.  The biggest winners are the players!

Save time.  You won’t have to start from scratch; just review and tweak plans as needed for your team.  Print out the plan for your upcoming practice and bring it with you to use as your guide.

Enable coaches to “live in the moment” at practices by being focused on the task at hand vs. having to worry about what to do next.

About the Author

Football Coach and Author Dave Cisar
Coach Dave Cisar in action

Coach Dave Cisar has compiled an impressive list of achievements coaching youth football throughout the years:

He has conducted over 160 coaches clinics in the US, Europe and in Latin America for Nike, Clinic of Champions and now for his own “Winning Youth Football” clinics. The bottom line, they don’t ask coaches to teach at these clinics unless they know their stuff. Dave Cisar knows his stuff.

Cisar’s teams have gone 149 & 21 since putting the system together in 2002 (Sure, if he did it with just one team, you might say his players carried him. But Cisar has done it with 8 different teams). His plans work.

His offense has averaged 35 points per game. Explosive!

Cisar’s defenses give up only 7 points per game on average. Stingy defenses win championships!


He’s pulled together this comprehensive Ebook — 286 pages in all — to share his secrets with you on how he does it. Cisar’s football coaching book is filled with over 200 diagrams and pictures as well as detailed instructions on how to build a winning program featuring the Single Wing Offense. It includes a top-down, detailed plan for excelling in all areas of the game: practice organization, offense, defense, special teams, and game-day management.  There are drills, tips, offensive schemes, defensive schemes, plays and more.

More Praise for Winning Youth Football: A Step by Step Plan

“My name is Fred Miller and I am a coach for Trevian Youth Football in the Greater Chicago area. I can’t begin to express how much your system Winning Youth Football helped my team and me personally as a coach these last two years. I recently retired from a very successful 13-year career as a player in the NFL and thought my own experience was all I needed to be successful at youth football…”Wrong!” Our first season wasn’t very pretty. We lost all of our games and didn’t score one touchdown. Players and parents were so frustrated that a quarter of the team didn’t return for the next season.

After my first season, I purchased Winning Youth Football–A Step by Step Plan and what a difference it made. My team went from the “outhouse to the penthouse” in one season. With the same players, we went from a no-win season to two undefeated seasons in regular-season play. We also competed in two Chicagoland Championships and split two national championship games while retaining 95% of my players. I’m most proud of the 95% retention rate, although undefeated seasons felt pretty good too!

I believe we started winning games and retained so many players because I followed the book step by step. I swallowed some pride and allowed your system to teach me about youth football. There wasn’t a day in my second season that I didn’t refer to your book or DVDs. Thanks for helping an ex-NFL player learn a thing or two about football.”
