Blank Replacement Files

Download Blank Files for a New Season or Replacement


Chalkboard & Playbook & Script

Many coaches have asked us how to quickly delete their chalkboard and playbook entries when they begin a new season. For example, a university coach had over 600 plays and formations in his chalkboard and didn't want to delete them one at a time.


We took the chalkboard and playbook database files and deleted everything except the default formations.


Downloading the blank replacement files completely replaces the existing chalkboard and playbook files - back up your files first.

  1. Back up your current chalkboard and playbook database files to an external drive. DO NOT continue without doing this step. [back up]

    • This is in the event you want to reload it.

  2. .Close Coach's Office software.

  3. Locate the Coach's Office software folder, where you will save the download playbook.

    • Windows 8, 7: Local Drive C/coachsoffice

    • Windows XP: Local Drive C/Program Files/coachsoffice

  4. Download the blank replacement file to the Coach's Office folder.

    • Script [download]
    • Browse to the folder location (see Locate above)

The Coach's Office wristband function is still part of the playbook program for you to create new ones. Use the advanced Coach's Office Copy Pages Utility to copy the originals to your current playbook file.
