Whether you are an experienced coach or a novice taking the reins of your first team, your main goal should be to create a fun, competitive and safe learning environment for your players.  The players and their parents have placed you in a position of leadership, and you have a responsibility to give them your best effort. 

Sportsmanship Rules!

Help your players be good sports. After a game, shake hands or high-five the other team. Applaud good play by both sides. Treat officials with respect. While imitating you, your team won't even recognize the good lesson they’re learning.

Let Them Play Football!

The temptation to be another Don Shula or Bill Walsh will have to wait. This is YOUTH FOOTBALL. While teaching football skills and strategies is important, keep your lessons simple and geared toward their age group. 

Have Fun!

We thank you for your volunteer service. Tackle football couldn't happen without you. Have a blast with these kids. This season may become a lifetime memory for both you and all your team. Have fun!
