We have all had the struggle of fitting in our minimum play players. It’s a real balancing act between getting in all your minimum players and being competitive on the football field. It is not as big of a deal when you have a smaller roster but when you have a large number of players (we had 28 and the minimum play rule was 8 plays per game) it becomes a challenge.
I came up with an excel spreadsheet to help me plan for each game and get a grasp of how many plays we would have to sub on. Saved a great deal of frustration at game time making sure your getting all your players in. Hope it can help you too!
