Play manager work is never truly done since there are always going to be changes made to the playbook. When I have to deal with the playbook I often turn to playbook software to help me organize and design better plays. Normally I would sit with a pen and paper and draw what I think would be a good play and then I would test it out with the team and see how it transpired on the field. Once I had finished with the field test of the play I would make changes and then test the whole thing all over again. After I had gone through my field tests a few times I would finally be able to commit to a play and add it to my playbook.
A play manager can have a very difficult job. Now that I have utilized playbook software I have a much sleeker system of developing new plays. When I need to make a new play now I just turn to my playbook software for help.
When I use playbook software I can design a play right there on my computer and then play it back with real-time animation to see how the play might work. I am able to see the play and make changes before I ever take a play out to the field and I can’t begin to tell you how happy that makes my play manager. I have been able to significantly cut down on the time that I spend using my team as a bunch of tackle dummies and that makes me a better coach overall.
If you are interested in finding out more about the playbook software that I use then you will do well to use one of the links that I have provided on this site. Once you have researched the software you may find that it changes the way that you develop plays altogether. The world of football is changing dramatically and I am trying to change with it.
