My oldest son’s flag football team I coached last year (4th and 5th grade). I threw way too many plays at them out of the gate and they were lost. After the first game I cut it down to four plays. It still was ugly for the next few games, but then the light came on and we won the last three.
This team is thin, don’t fit the scheme, and don’t know what to do. It takes everyone doing their job to be successful, so it’s going to take time before it clicks and everyone starts playing their part.
