Athletic Performance: Off-Season Program 2018 (part 3), Movement

It’s that time of the year again. The footballs are locked away in the equipment room and your staff is starting to meet again. As a coach, you’re hitting clinics and the AFCA Convention. But you still have a job to do. Your job from January through early August is to get your players to be more athletic, while still respecting their other sports they play and their grades. Your staff needs to sit down and meet to figure out the following, but here are my tips for each section:

The End of the Team Stretch Period

I’ve given up on team stretch. Between the loss of time, the waste of time, and the clouded purpose I decided to move on from it this past spring while I was still in Oregon. We instituted pat & go and OL agilities on offense days and pursuit drill on defense days.

Programming your off-season program

Our weight program is designed around two extremely complex lifts: the power clean and the barbell snatch. Even if we never power clean or barbell snatch, that’s still the emphasis behind the way we program our Athletic Performance Program. We can do the parts that sum the whole of the two lifts and become better athletes in the process.

Strength & Speed: Dynamic Warm-Up

As a football coach many times you become a de-facto strength and speed coach either because you’re the header, or because you’re the assistant on campus or maybe you just have enthusiasm for the topic and are willing to learn.

Through my time lifting not only for my own benefit but for the benefit of my program, I’ve discovered that I need to trick my body while keeping myself engaged. Not just that but after clinics, reading books, and meeting with strength coaches I’ve discovered what is important in the strength world as a football coach.
