Welcome to the Coaches Learning Network.

Dear Coach,

Welcome to the Coaches Learning Network, and thank you for being a coach. I have been coaching for over 20 years now, and I know of no other profession like ours.

If every profession had as many passionate, dedicated, committed and demanding people who cared about others as much as coaches do, there would be very few problems in our world today.

I have personally learned many lessons on the practice and game field that I now teach my sons in every day life.

That's why we created the Coaches Learning Network.

It’s our way of giving something back to the profession by providing a resource and community for COACHES to LEARN and NETWORK with each.

The Coaches Learning Network is an online resource and community for football coaches at ALL LEVELS - because all coaches want to learn and grow, and all coaches have knowledge and experience to share.

Coaches Learning Network resources include Team Clinic, Article, Drill, and Form libraries regarding offense, defense, special teams, techniques, communication, organization, motivation, philosophy, athletic training, etc.

The response to the CLN has been amazing. Our membership represents over 1,000 U.S. schools and teams in over 15 countries. 

And I have to admit having the opportunity to discuss football with so many coaches has been a nice benefit of creating the CLN.

TEAM CLINIC. The centerpiece of the CLN is the Team Clinic which features material provided by a full college staff.

Team Clinics have featured the outstanding coaching staffs at the University of Michigan, Northern Michigan University, St. Norbert College, California University of Pennsylvania, University of Missouri-Rolla, and Saginaw Valley State University.

If you are interested in being a featured Coaches Learning Network Team Clinic contact us at Coach@CoachesLearningNetwork.com.

I want to learn how my staff could be a featured CLN Team Clinic.

One of our proudest achievements came when Pop Warner named us an “Official Online Coaching Resource for Pop Warner Football” on the national level.

Since the start of the CLN it has been our goal to develop a resource that benefited ALL COACHES at all LEVELS because all coaches want to learn and grow, and all coaches have knowledge and experience to share.

We are excited to extend that opportunity to Pop Warner coaches everywhere, and if you have a youth football program in your community, please feel free to let coaches and parents know of this resource as well.

FREE NEWSLETTER. Now anyone can receive the FREE CLN NEWSLETTER. To receive the latest CLN articles, features, and news updates, just email us at Coach@CoachesLearningNetwork.com and put “Free Newsletter” in the subject line. Your email will not be shared with anyone, and will only be used to send you your free CLN Newsletter.

ALL COACHES CAN CONTRIBUTE. The CLN is for ALL coaches at ALL levels. If you wish to share your experience and knowledge about drills, techniques, plays, schemes, philosophy, practice plans, game plans, relationships with parents, recruiting players, off-season programs, or any other aspect related to coaching football you are encouraged to do so. If we use your submitted material you will receive a FREE ONE-YEAR MEMBERSHIP.
