Letter from the Author, Jim Oddo.

November 25, 2009

Dear Frustrated Coach,

If you've ever struggled with annual youth football tryouts tasks, you're in the right place. That's because I've just released my best selling football tryouts help book - (Youth Football Tryouts and Evaluations).

I'll just briefly introduce myself here to show you why I can be trusted when it comes to the subject of "football coaching" books and ebooks.

My name is Jim Oddo. I'm a professional writer and businessman with more than 30 years of professional experience.

Over the past 2 years, I have become well-known in Internet circles as the Webmaster of one of the most popular youth football coaching websites on the Net, Since Decmeber 2007, more than 1 million people from all over the world have visited that site to obtain information and help with their youth football needs.

I am also the creator of what is quite possibly the most popular Youth Football Tryouts book on the Internet, "Youth Football Tryouts ". In two years, more than 10,000 people from over 17 states have purchased that book, and rave reviews from coaches continue to pour in daily from all over the US.

In addition, I'm the author of a series of popular football coaching books/ebooks: The Complete Single Wing Playbook, Coaching Youth Football, The 3-4 Defense, Coaching Youth Football-Administrative Duties, Defending the Single Wing, The Youth Football Team Mom Organizer and many more.

Time Out:
Before you go any further, why not check out over 200 of my FREE articles, "Tips and Tricks For Coaching Success!"? More than 20,000 people from every state has visited this website to read these gems..

It's a FREE , just visit There's no obligation.

I update the site on a continuous basis covering every aspect of caoching youth football as well as a few more topics.

People Wanted More
Than Just Another Boring Football Tryouts Manual

Two years ago, a few months after I launched my website, I wrote and published my very first eBook, The Single Wing Playbook (Complete Edition).

The idea for that first practical "youth football playbbok" came from studying the coaching information needs of the first few thousand visitors to

I could see that people wanting to coach youth football were NOT looking for another dry style manual full of war stories and unrealistic schemes. Rather, based on what pages visitors were referencing on my website, plus the e-mail questions I was getting, it quickly became clear that people were looking for practical "hands-on" tips, tricks, advice, info and sample templates.

That's when the idea first struck me. I thought, "Why not combine my ability for business and personal coaching, my many years of varied professional and life experience, and my knowledge of the Internet, to develop a product that could help the average coach improve and fast-track their youth coaching ability?"

In other words, "Why not share the valuable practical lessons I have learned during those 22 years while coaching youth football for virtually every situation imaginable?"

That's how I first got the idea to develop a "football tryout" book for every coach.

They Wanted A "Hands-On" Practical Football Tryout Guide

BUT, based on what visitors to my website were clearly telling me, the emphasis needed to be on the "tryout" aspect, more than anything else. As I said above, I could see that the world certainly didn't need another "coaching youth footballl" to line the bookshelves.

So, right up front I decided that this "football tryouts book" would be much more than just another "how-to" book. I would develop something that people could actually "apply" in a real and practical sense in their youth football tryouts; something containing actual real-life examples of evaluating players.

Long story short; from the day I launched Youth Football Tryouts & Evaluations, it was a popular seller and remains so up until this date.

That was two years ago, which is almost ancient history in Internet terms.

Meanwhile, during the intervening years I had the experience of writing and publishing 12 additional coaching-related books/ebooks..

So, How Much Is All Of This Worth?

... is a question you are probably asking right about now.

That all depends of course, on how you look at it. But when you really think about it carefully, what you're actually asking yourself is…

  • "What value do I put on a product that will save me significant amounts of money, time, and effort - year, after year, after year?"

  • "What is it worth for me to learn how to be efficient and run a better more organized tryout then the other coaches?"

  • "How much do I value time and organization?"

Well, I've got good news for you. It's not going to cost you a lot!

That's because, what all of this is worth in terms of "value", and what the actual cost to you will be, are two completely different things!

The Book Is Actually Worth Much More Than You'll Pay…

Here are some example illustrations that will give you just an idea of the true value of Youth Football Tryouts and Evaluations:

  • The cost to hire a professional programmer to develop a spreadsheet ranges from $60 to $100/hr.

  • A brain storming session with a 22+ year veteran coach is priceless, if you can find one.

  • The information in the Evaluating Personal Chapter alone, with insider tips, tricks, advice, and samples of the drills would sell for at least $195 at a typical seminar.

  • The Free Bonus Consultations with me me is worth $75 to $150, assuming I spend between ¾ and 1½ hour(s) for the research and response to your emails.

    Based on these typical examples, just applying the Tryouts Book and Bonuses to a few typical youth football tryouts seminars could easily be worth $500 or more in direct savings to you.

And don't forget about the value of your personal and professional time! Every time you use the Youth Football Tryouts Book for one of your seasons it will save you valuable hours of personal and business time.

What's your time worth to you, anyway?

Clearly, No Matter Which Way You Look At It,
This Book Is An Incredible Bargain!

But wait, that's not all! Are you ready for this?

The fact is, the 15 evaluation skilld, drills, and other templates included in this book were all written by a 22+ year veteran or coaching youth football in real-life situations.

Youth football seminars go for anywhere from $150 to $600 per day.

This may be hard to believe but it's absolutely true! It really DOES cost various coaches that much to have "professionals seminar" with all of this content!

Furthemore, it's difficult to even put a value on the ability you will have to download the Book and work with it on screen or print copies..

Priceless perhaps?

So, what price to charge you for this value-packed offering has caused me a bit of a dilemma.

Professional pricing research has told us that for a unique eBook like this Book, packaged together with downloadable templates, we should be charging somewhere between $50 and $75 for each copy!

But the fact is, in reality you won't have to pay anywhere near that much.

You can order your Book right here!

So, What's The Catch?
Why Am I Selling The Book Well Below $50?

Well, there are two simple reasons.

Number one. The economy is hurting everyone. People are losing jobs everyday and I understand that every dollar must be watched. You need to make sure you get quality and value with every purchase.

Number two. Since you will be accessing the Book directly via the Internet, I have no inventory or order fulfillment costs. No shipping department, no receptionist, no couriers, etc. These costs are just not a factor for me. I only have to worry about online costs.

Therefore, it's a win-win situation for both of us! We save in costs and you save in price!

I Can't Price It Any Lower Than This!

That is, if you purchase NOW.

For the time being, I have decided to charge a super-low market penetration price of $29.00!  Introductory Special: $29.00 for a limited time only.

Just think. That works out to a mere 29 cents per downloadable page! And you can use each one over and over, again!

Soon I will start gradually increasing that price. But right now, in order to reach the widest possible audience we have decided to offer this value-packed package at this special low price.

(Please Note: Because of the dynamic nature of the Net, we review these prices every day, so we cannot guarantee this low price for more than 24 hours at a time. So if you're seriously thinking of buying, Do It Now, so you won't miss out and be disappointed.)

As a matter of fact, although I've more than doubled the content in the Book, this price is just slightly lower than what I charged for 2+ years. In fact, the major decrease doesn't even cover the cost of inflation over that period!

But because this IS my "flagship" tryout product I want it to be accessible to as many people as possible, worldwide. Of course, I do need to cover my expenses and make a modest return for my efforts, but I don't want price to be a serious barrier for thie product.

Think about it. We're not talking about "big bucks" here. After all, that price is worth about 10 minutes of a youth football seminar!

Given this low price, you will save 3 to 5 times the effort of having to research and develop your own, unproven youth football tryout plan.

You can order your Book right here!
