Preserving Success While Innovating Your Offense

Preserving Success While Innovating Your Offense

Kyle Ohradzansky, Steven Ciocci, and Kyle Segler share their approaches to offseason study that lead to strong and resilient teams capable of adapting to the evolving landscape of our game.

Listen On:

The offseason usually begins with the challenge of striking a balance between preserving successful elements of the previous season and introducing new schemes, strategies, and tactics for the next season. This delicate balance is essential for the growth and success of our teams.

By staying true to the team’s core beliefs and values, collaborating with defensive coaches, and being open to innovative ideas, coaches ensure continuity while fostering growth and adaptation. It’s essential to prioritize elements that are truly applicable to the team and to become experts in those aspects, rather than succumbing to the temptation of wholesale scheme changes.
