Empowering Coaches Step-By-Step

Recruiting Youth Football Players

Many youth football leagues do not allow recruiting of players, in other leagues it is needed for survival.

Here are some inexpensive “guerilla marketing” recruiting methods you can use:

Flyers to the Schools-( Chapter 4 of the book shows you how to get around school rules that block this tactic)
Punt Pass and Kick Contest- We had the winners compete at the halftime of our local indoor pro football team.
School Assemblies- Much easier than you think
School Lunch Room Highlight Shows
Other Sports Sporting Events
School Open House Booths
Church Bulletin Announcements
Press Releases
Newspaper Articles
Radio Interviews
TV “Works Event” Coverage
Player “Bounties”
Church or School Carnival/Festival Booths
Saturday Grocery Store Table or Flyer Handout
Web Site
Posters
Parades
Trophy Displays at School
Team Game Jersey Days at School

Our Organization grew from 1 team to 16 in just 5 years using these methods. We ran just one very expensive newspaper add during this time period (it gave us little return).

Details on how to make it all work including free press releases and radio interviews are in Chapter 4 of the book and include examples of our flyers.
