6 man intro

6 man is not big in Kansas but there has been growth the last 5 years up to double digit teams. Our school has been in a coop for several years now. There is a feeling that support is behind getting football home and getting the lights turned on for Friday nights again. I know the basics of field size and rules but would anyone be willing to share their philosophy, organization, practice plans, playbooks? I think we will make a decision in the next month. I know there are nuances with 6 man that are different than 8 and 11. I believe there would be less than 10 out the first year and we would be young. Thoughts?

Come on folks, how about a little help for the man from Kansas. There are plenty of folks that frequent this board that could point him in the right direction.

Get in touch with Charles (Cowboy) Parks on FB or at sixmania.com. He has a lot of game film and he knows a lot of people all over the state. I know he would be willing to help.

Start the players running wind sprints until they puke, now. As the saying goes, speed kills in sixman.

I've read some prior coaching clinics are available on DVD. Where I'm not sure.
