What training do the coaches receive?
Our league requires all coaches to participate in a 4 hour Football Safety training class prior to their first year on the field. This training is sponsored by USA Football, which teaches Heads Up Football, the safety standard for all youth football leagues nationwide. The coaches must also participate in a 2 hour USA Football certification update class annually. Furthermore, because all the coaches in our league are required to participate in this training, not only are our kids taught to play smart and safe but the teams we play against are taught the same safety techniques.
