We recognize that coaches are the people who most directly make this all possible. It is our goal to provide every coach with the tools to succeed as a Positive Coach. We are committed to creating a positive culture, in which coaches, parents, fans, officials and athletes work together to achieve our mission in a respectful, professional manner.
All coaches are required to be Tackle Sure and/or Heads Up certified.
All coaches should understand and agree to abide by the rules and procedures prescribed by the PYFCL and national AYF.
All coaches must complete their volunteer application and background check before they are allowed to work with participants. (Please see forms below)
AYF programs nationwide will be required to annually conduct a background check of: Coaches, Board of Directors members and any other persons, volunteers or hired workers, who provide regular service to the league and/or have repetitive access to, or contact with, players and/or spirit participants.
The purpose of these background checks is, first and foremost, to protect the children. More information can be found on the link to the PYFCL web site. Background checks must be completed prior to serving in a volunteer capacity with the organization.
