Youth football offensive formations should focus on running the ball. Too many youth footbal coaches want to run a pro NFL style offense or the Spread offense the local High School is running. Your youth football players can run neither of these offenses well. The best youth football offenses are the early football running formations like the Single Wing Offense or Double Wing or my favorite The Beast from Yale.
Here are some of my favorite youth football offensive formations. These are really power running formations.
- The Beast
- Single Wing
- Double Wing
- The Spin
- Wing T
- Power I Formtion
- The I Formation
- Straight T
All of the formations are running formations and have good play action pass attacks. I also like to run an unbalanced offensive line when I coach youth football teams. Some players can pull but usually get lost in the shuffle of the play. By making your line unbalanced, the power side play side is a very tough wall of blockers for the defense to overcome.
