With a focus on fundamentals and safety, USA Football is committed to providing football coaches with the best in coaching education. The video-based instruction courses are full of animated plays as well as quizzes showing proper technique and form. The Huntington Youth Football League is excited to partner with USA Football to provide your child's coach the best in coaching education.
Certified coaches receive the peace of mind of proper education, a certificate, and appear on the USA Football National Coaching registry and become eligible for coaching insurance benefits. All Huntington Youth Football Coaches will receive a complimentary membership and will complete the USA Football Certification Course.
Before starting the season, coaches must become certified with USA Football. There is no cost of the certification. It must be completed before opening day (July 27). Please follow this link for the instructions: USA Football Certification

The HYFL is committed to the safety of our players. As a result, we are actively participating in the new Heads Up tackling program developed by USA Football. During the season we will have interactive clinics not only with our coaches but our parents to showcase the new techniques we will be teaching our players.
