Glazier Clinic’s Motto is “We help coaches win!” and I’m privileged to have been invited to speak on seven different topics at this weekend’s New England Glazier Clinic in Groton CT where I hope to do my part to “help coaches win.” Ray Richard, St Johnsbury Academy assistant coach and I will make the drive over to the clinic and immerse ourselves in learning, rekindling old friendships and making new ones. Glazier Clinics always have a great line up of speakers and I am honored to both be on that list as well as have another opportunity to share what we do with other coaches from our region.
Friday will allow Ray and I to attend multiple presentations by top high school, college and NFL coaches. My first commitment is a “Chalk War” Saturday morning followed by a Panel Session. Pat Fox, Head Coach Notre Dame Prep, MI and I will battle wits on the grease board with a moderator providing game situations. I will then join Chad Neal, Head Coach Killingly High School, CT in a panel session titled 30-Rapid Fire Program Development Ideas.
Later Saturday I’ll be giving back-to-back-to-back presentations. The first is “One Scheme, Multiple Plays for Any Offense,” is an evolution of the presentation I gave at the 2018 USA Football National Conference. Next, is “A Better Way to Run RPOs (Run Pass Options),” and my day concludes with “Adding SPOs to your RPOs (Screen Pass Options to your Run Pass Options).”
On Sunday morning in session 1, I will be sharing our “4th & Go! No Punt Team Offense,” then “Go For Two with the Swinging Gate” and “Running Swinging Gate Anywhere on the Field” in the final session of the Clinic.
I am thrilled to have these seven opportunities to share ideas, schemes, and philosophies with coaches just as coaches have done for me for over 30 years. As at most clinics, there will also be great sidebar conversations over a spectrum of topics from X’s & O’s, to philosophy, culture, leadership, and helping student-athletes realize their potential on and off the field.
Lastly, I will look forward to the drive home and the opportunity for Ray to share what he learned at the sessions he attended. Then it is time to strap in with family and friends for Super Bowl LIII.
Coach Rich Alercio is available to discuss coaching philosophy, X’s & O’s, or teach his O-Line “techniques in the trenches.” Contact Coach at firstname.lastname@example.org and share http://www.olineskills.com with your colleagues and friends. Thanks for your time!
