Kind of an odd question. Im working on going back and coaching pop warner as it gives me alot of happiness working with kids. That being said, the pop warner program in our area has asked me to look at helping out for a year or so as a high school coach demonstraiting how we should be doing things from a technique stand point. I'm unsure if i would be a head coach (not a super big fan of dealing with moms and all of there my little jimmy is a D1 kid) or just a coordinator.
Its been about 4-5 years since ive done this, so a couple questions..
1. What has changed? 2. Are they still primary 62 amd 53 defenses? 3. Do coaches now give out playbook? Ive seen both. Is this expected now?

There’s been more spreading of the field at the higher levels but the bulk of youth teams still want to give their fastest kid the ball. A 50 front will be more than adequate. Beyond the truly elite teams I’ve never seen nor heard of a youth team passing more than 20%. The spread teams tend to get you by being consistent on the screens and making you tackle, they’re not about to run post-dig-mesh on you.
