Football is a game of adjustments. Whoever can make the correct adjustments the quickest will generally prevail in a game. The ASKA Principle and Pulling Levers is just an incremental adjustment system that allows a coach to make changes on the fly, or build a game plan throughout the week, and knowing exactly what they changed and why.
On this episode, Joe and Daniel discuss what levers are, how to determine which ones you should pull, and a checklist to start solving whatever problems you’re facing today.
Sometimes we find ourselves in a position where change is necessary in our depth chart. Maybe the injury bug has hit your team, suspensions, grade troubles… The list is endless. Regardless of the reason, you need to be ready to move players around within your scheme.
In this episode, Joe and Daniel are joined by Coach James Vint to discuss how to make changes to your lineup, when the foundation for a “We not me” team is best to be laid, and how to prevent backlash from players, families, and fans when making those changes.
Self scouting is hard to do midseason. You have 2-3 films from your opponent that you really need to start deciphering immediately. You still need to work in family time this weekend, and draw up the next magical offensive play (what was that play that the Chiefs ran last Sunday anyways?) that’s sure to lead to victory. But, self scouting is an investment in yourself and your team that may be more beneficial than ever turning on the opposing team’s film.
On this episode, Joe and Daniel are joined by Coach Matt Allen to discuss all of the pros to breaking down your own film, finding and fixing your weaknesses, and using last week’s film to determine what you need to schedule in practice this week.
“Football is a game of adjustments.” I’ve probably said that phrase 25 times in the last 5 weeks. Some weeks we’re better at it than others. If you’re not make adjustments throughout the week, or on Friday nights, then you may find yourself playing less efficient football and in need of evolving what you’re doing as a play caller.
On this episode, Joe and Daniel discuss what it takes to identify the things you’re doing right or wrong and how to begin altering the game plan you’re using to put your kids in the best position to be successful.
