EVALUATION CHARTS
The single most important evaluation chart that will ever be filled out is the evaluation chart your players fill out in evaluation of your own program at the end of the season. A program should come under the same scrutiny as the individual players themselves. In this way a coach can learn of any areas in his or her program that the participants believe need improving. While no single response should be over magnified, a collective response might indicate an area which needs improvement. Here is Bob Reade's Program Evaluation Form for Players (to be completed at season's end):

Here is a typical player evaluation form (not position specific). This evaluation should be filled out by every coach and team captain on every player. This form should be completed as the pre season ends, about a week prior to the opening game. More position specific charts and forms should be compiled for each player position and filled out by coaches only. These position specific forms and or charts are too detailed and numerous to be included here but their exclusion here should not minimize their importance to the coaching staff. Such charts can often expose a player not being utilized to his or her fullest potential. For example, a player with good speed and footwork and a great work ethic and attitude, but not possessing particularly "good hands" might be better suited as a defensive back than a wide receiver.
