Off - Season Clinics

This is the time of year where I begin to evaluate which clinics our staff needs to visit in the off - season. There are so many good clinics out there but you cannot visit all of them. You must be strategic and choose the ones that will help you develop your scheme and football players. Below is a list of clinics that we have chosen to attend this off - season:

1. Visit other High School coaches! They are the most helpful in my opinion because they understand our challenges at the high school level. They are also at the mercy of their roster and do not get to recruit their players.

2. Take your staff to a Glazier Clinic. The Glazier Clinics are the best mega clinics around. You get year round access to their online material and you can attend all of their clinics with your staff. Now, I would pick one and take your whole staff to it. Also, as a head coach I will ask my position coaches to attend certain clinics so they can master their craft as coaches.

3. Visit a local college. Visiting a college staff for a couple of days is a great way to learn the ins and outs of their offensive / defensive systems. But, you have to remember that they can recruit their players, so make sure to adapt their system to the strengths of your players.

I hope that list was helpful and best of luck developing your program this off - season!!

We will visit WVSU in the off - season
