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.
AYF 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 AYF 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.
AYF and exclusive coaching education partner ASEP have joined together 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 AYF National Championship Coaches.
