Endorsed by American Youth Football, the largest football organization in the country, Coaching Youth Football is a great introduction to teaching youth the valuable skills they need to play football. From communicating as a coach and providing for your players’ safety to teaching offensive and defensive skills and tactics, the book provides all of the information you need to help 8- to 14-year-olds learn and enjoy the game of football.

As part of ASEP’s long-running Coaching Youth Sport series, this fifth edition features updated information and an enhanced section about players’ safety on the field, including new information on concussion from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In addition, this book includes more than 40 new drills, games, and coaching tips to make practices fun and practical throughout the season. Fundamentals of offense, defense, and special teams are covered in depth, supported by a total of more than 70 drills and over 60 photos and illustrations.

Ideal for coaches of players ages 14 and under, this book is also a valuable component of the Coaching Youth Football online course, the official course of AYF offered by the American Sport Education Program. With this book, coaches will create an environment that promotes learning, enjoyment, and motivation so that players will come out for the team year after year.
