Thank you for being an American Youth Football and Cheer coach. Much time and effort are required to coach athletes and manage a team. Your commitment and dedication to coaching are greatly appreciated—by your participants, their parents, other coaches, your community, and the entire AYF/AYC organization. The influence you have on your players and squad members will be remembered for a lifetime. It’s a responsibility not to be taken lightly.
With that in mind, new football and cheer coaches in 2021 earn initial certification by purchasing and taking the introductory course for the sport coached. Returning AYF and AYC coaches in 2021 continue their professional development by purchasing and taking the recertification course. It’s an investment that will provide dividends for seasons to come.
