Can I share EZPLAYZ with other teams in my Association?

No you cannot.  EZPLAYZ is copyrighted and licensed for the sole use of the purchaser.  Distribution of individual pages contained in the ebook is permissible to your assistant coaches, players and parents of players only.  Distribution of this ebook or distribution of printed versions outside of your team is strictly prohibited. 

How many times can I install EZPLAYZ?

EZPLAYZ can be installed on the Head Coach’s laptop and home computers only.  Individual plays can then be distributed via e-mail.

How do I use EZPLAYZ?

Please refer to the EZ TO USE section on the homepage for how to use EZPLAYZ.

How many plays will I get when I download the EZPLAYZ Animated Football Playbook?

EZPLAYZ has 647 unique plays in 17 total formations (in 7 base formations). We have also used two blocking schemes for each running play (Zone Block and Blocking Rules) making the total number of plays 812. We are constantly developing new plays in various formations, so make sure to check back often for the latest plays.

How many formations does EZPLAYZ cover?

EZPLAYZ covers 7 different base formations at this time.  These formations include the Pro Set, I Formation, Power I, Trips, Wedge, Wishbone and Wing.

Does EZPLAYZ offer playbooks for Defense and Special Teams?

Not at this time, however, those playbooks are in development and we hope to be able to offer them to the public in the near future.

Are the plays animated against any particular defensive formation?

EZPLAYZ was designed to give the coaches and players a visualization of the designed play from pre-snap to post-completion/end of the run.  Due to the sheer number of defensive fronts and alignments a team may face during the course of a season, it is impossible to illustrate every scenario. 

Why are there no textual descriptions of the plays?

This is due to the reason stated above.  We realize that coaches are going to have to make certain adjustments based upon defensive fronts and alignments, not to mention the varying skill sets on your team. 

Can I alter or create my own plays?

EZPLAYZ cannot be altered, however, coaching points can be included in the body of the e-mail at the time of distribution.  This is how a coach can personalize his playbook based upon defensive fronts, alignments and varying skill sets. 

The EZPLAYZ numbering system and assignments are different than what I’m used to.  Why is that?

You could put 10 offensive coordinators in a room with an unnamed play diagramed on a whiteboard and I guarantee you that you’d get 10 different names for that play.  What EZPLAYZ has tried to do is utilize the most universal back and receiver numbering system, along with the most universal route tree, to give you a concise and comprehensive playbook.
