Well, I've been asked to start adding to this blog although I have been blogging recently on http://www.tripleshootfootball.com/.
The offense has been through a codification process this off-season. I feel as If last year was a catharsis for me in coaching the system. The coaching clinics that we did last year were extremely successful as per the results that all the high schools have had in 2008.
I took some time in the off-season after I asked myself the question, "How can I help more coaches improve their already impressive results in running the offense?" And, here what I came up with ....
First of all, I have decided to offer this service to coaches nationwide via our online Triple Shoot Seminar. This came to me after our first event in January, 2009. So that product will be launched shortly .... check out the companion website for updates.
In asking the question above, I started to ponder the keys to the actual execution in football in general. After some research, I noticed that if the game was basically executed via assignments, technique and effort, then I should really get to the bottom of this and help our team and others in implementing the offense. You might ask, "where in the world is this guy going with this?" And, that's a good question. Without going into all of my research, just trust me on this concept ..... The foundation of any offense is based on being assignment correct. Missed assignments occur for this one reason and this one reason only .... "mis-understood words". WHAT?!
Yes, the mis-understood word (not the concept) is actually the root of ALL assignment busts. (This alone is worth a blog in and of itself) Think about it, if every coach clearly understood every word in your teaching implementation, then they could get grasp of the concepts and then have the basis for teaching the system.
If you can follow this, now is the time to explain what I have done. Codification of the system has been the first action that has come into play. I started this process by have a novice coach review all my teaching progressions and answering the following question, "What words are not clear to you?" After that, I went in and created a comprehensive glossary of over 15 pages and defined every word and coaching point. WOW! I feel like I have found the Holy Grail!
This codification system has been incorporated in my teaching methodology and initial tests have shown so many "aha" moments by players and coaches that I am certain this will be an overwhelming success when the Triple Shoot Online program is launched.
Please, stay posted for what's up next.
