Pistol Offense Playbook for Youth Football

The Pistol Offense Playbook for Youth Football is a balanced playbook. The Pistol Formation is somewhat of a hybrid formation that utilizes strengths from both Shotgun and Double Wing/slot Formations. The double slots will create alignment conflict for the defense. These slots are utilized in several different ways in this playbook (run game, pass game, and blocking).

Putting the QB in the Pistol will allows you to utilize his athleticism. The pistol formation will also give your QB more time to throw the football. It will also allow the QB to see the field much easier. You will also get better fakes and angles to attack the defense out of the pistol. The Pistol will also help if your offensive line isn’t very good. This playbook is very easy to install and it works very well in youth football.

This playbook includes everything you need to install the offense. This playbook has plays that attack the interior, off-tackle, and edge of the defense. It also has a very explosive play-action passing attack. This playbook is very diverse as it features several different plays. This playbook features two formations: ‘Slots’ and ‘King’. This offense is very simple and it will allow your players to play fast and really dominate within the scheme of the system.

Slots Formation (balanced)

  • Features two compressed split-ends and two slot backs, one to each side. This puts the defense in alignment conflict and forces the defense to defend both sides of the formation. Having two compressed split-ends will also give you excellent crack blocking angles on the defense.
  • Slots are utilized in the run game, pass game, and they are used as blockers. The slots will be motioned across to gain blocking leverage and numbers advantage to one side. The slots will also be sent in motion to attack the edge of the defense.

King Formation (unbalanced ‘King Right’ & ‘King Left’) 

  • Unbalanced formation that allows you to out number the defense at the point of attack. It’s pretty much for running the ball down the defense’s throat.
  • It’s an unbalanced formation as it features a TE and WB flank as well as a fullback off-set to the tight-end and wing flank side.  This formation features double tight-ends so you can still threaten the defense away from the TE and WB flank side. It’s an unbalanced formation that forces the defense to align like the offense is balanced.

    Terrific, it was my first time being a Head Coach of a football team. My 9U team started off rough but once studied the playbook for Pistol formation we end up finishing over 500 and Super Bowl win.

    This is a great playbook. It put together well and it is informative. It’s what works in youth.

    Pistol Offense is great. I recommend. Coach Jeff was great.

  4. Coach Jeff P (verified owner)

    This playbook gives you a lot of value.The free i-option playbook is several pages and is a good playbook too. The kings formation that is featured in this playbook was really good for us and we actually expanded it as the season went on.

  5. Coach John Soranto (verified owner)

    Really loved the playbook. Kids caught on quickly, hoping we make a run at the championship this season with it.

  6. Dewayne Phillips (verified owner)

    I bought it last week and i’ll say it is very informative. I went through the whole thing and I am very impressed, I haven’t used it with my team yet, but super excited to install it for the first time this season. We were very bad last year so we needed to change something. -North Carolina
