Draw Plays for Offense & Defense

Chalkboard Program

The chalkboard is the heart of Coach’s Office football software where you draw plays – everything starts here. This is where you draw offensive formations and plays, with fronts and coverages, and save them for future use to be accessed by the playbook and script programs. The chalkboard is included in all the Coach’s Office playbook and script programs.


Use the chalkboard’s drawing tools to easily diagram plays.

  • Draw routes, blocks, and other assignments with a large set of drawing tools.
  • Instantly flip the offense or defense left or right or above or below the ball.
  • Easily display offensive formations or plays against any combination of fronts and coverages.
  • Assign a color to a player and his route or blocks.

  • Print individual plays on full page.
