Create Practice Scripts and Play Cards

Save hours of drawing play cards by printing them from your script. You’ve already drawn the formations and plays in the Coach’s Office chalkboard. Now use them in the script to schedule your practices, review the plays that you run in practice, and print play cards. The Coach’s Office Pro Bundle includes the script software.

Familiar Spreadsheet Layout

Coach’s Office pioneered the concept of integrating a spreadsheet-style script with play cards, because most coaches use spreadsheets.

  • Enter the plays and formations from a drop down list. (This is the list from the chalkboard that you’ve already created.)
  • Print play cards (scout cards).
  • Print 2, 4, 8, 16, or 32 plays per page from the practice script.
  • Define any combination of plays per page and page orientation.
  • Define practice schedule for each week.
  • Print the script and plays for the game plan.
  • Add, insert, and delete rows.

Preview Plays

As the offense, front, and coverage are added to the script from the drop down lists, they appear in the preview play box to the right of the script layout. (Shown as inset.)

Also, you can select a row to display the formation/play.

Print Options

The script has many print options, because coaches have a variety of print requirements.

  • Print the script and play cards for each day right from the script.
  • Choose to print 2 to 32 plays per page.
  • Print a distribution of the offense, front, and coverage to show the number of times a formation is used.
