At American Youth Football, safety is the first priority when it comes to a child's participation. From background checks and concussion awareness, to education and insurance, we take pride in our safety first risk management, which provides the most professional and safe environment for children to play.
AYC has partnered with the top training providers and athletic coaches. Failure to act in a safe and responsible manner, with the children entrusted to you, will be dealt with severe consequences from the AYF National Office.
Due to today’s safety concerns for our children in sport, all AYC cheer coaches are strongly advised to complete the online course at AYFcoaching.com. The course, for only $24.95, includes a $2 million extra liability coverage, which is twice the amount offered by our competition. For those coaches who have been certified through ayfcoaching.com in the past, we also offer a recertification course that will also include a $2 million extra liability coverage at a discounted rate. Please go to AYFcoaching.com for further information.
Exclusive coaching education partner ASEP has joined with AYC to design these special courses. Those coaches who take the course will obtain a certification of completion and get listed in the National Coaches Registry. Administrators can also buy the courses for their coaches under an organization account.
* This is the ONLY coaches training course that is accepted for AYC National Championship Coaches.

There is no band aid solution to the concussion issue which exists at every level of play. To insure the well being of young athletes, AYF and AYC insists on proper instruction by competent coaches and most important, in a culture of good sportsmanship.
AYC has partnered with Axon sports, experts in neuro-cognitive functioning and training, to create baseline testing for AYC athletes. Together we have made it easy to assess cognitive functioning with tools that aid in the evaluation of sports related concussions.
AYC also requires each coach and assistant coach to complete a concussion course to be rostered on a team. Please contact American Youth Football for questions regarding this certification.
