Pee Wee Football is the foundation for every high school football program. Youth players learning the basic fundamentals of football then, the coach teaching his or her offensive and defensive schemes each year helps teams build their program's future. It's important to keep your schemes basic. Trying to install a complicated read oriented offense or multiple scheme defense will only slow your teams overall growth.
