For those of your who dont know what powderpuff is...powderpuff is junior girls VS varsity girls flag football (highschool)..this year it actually might be tackle becuase its not hosted by the school so if there is a difference in any of your suggestions let me know.
I am one of the coaches for the juniors and I dont really know where to begin. I think we are going to run the spread becuase we have a lot of smaller faster girls who are athletic. The seniors have one more year of experience and supposedly have a really good quarterback who is athletic (older brothers?). I had originally thought that we could just put everyone pretty much in the box because all they would do is run and the girls couldnt really throw that well and wouldnt be able to really threaten us if we cheat up. But now that I know they have a good QB i need to rethink. . They have a lot of quick athletic girls as well and i cant really think of any big strong girls that would make up the line for them. What type of a defense should we run? im still kinda thinking a blitz heavy defense would work but explain them to me.
We are going to put one of our faster girls at QB so hopefully she can do a lot of options and QB sneaks. I think trick plays are going to work great because the other team wont stick to there assignments and once they think the play is going a certain way it will be like 8 year olds playing soccer for the first time (everyone rushes to the ball). so a reverse thrown in there would work great. . What do you guys think about these other trick plays...double reverse, triple reverse, statue of liberty, or hook and ladder..any others you can think of?
While running the ball, dont you think it will be most efficient if we do spin moves while trying to avoid getting our flags grabbed? because if you spin. the girls will miss the flag.
I am thinking of having 1 safety, 2 CB, 4 LB with kinda a hybrid Lb that plays either up on the line (Roh) or back as a second safety (depending on how they set up), 2 DE who will be told to just contain and watch the outside run (if they run through the line it is easy for the girls to reach and grab the flag), 2 DT who can hopefully hold there own...I think blitzing from the outside will be most effective becuase thats where the most space will be so i am guessing thats where they will run
on kick return I think we should do that play where like 4 players all hudle together once one of them has caught the ball and then peel off in all different directions so that the defense has no clue which girl has the ball.
Once again, these are all very basic thoughts and I am sure I sounded very dumb on most of these strategies..any help would be greatly appreciated and detail would be helpful as well since i have no idea how to teach any of this. Thanks a lot and go blue!
