Coaches Training & Certification

Player safety is on all levels our top priority.

This year since NFLYFL only had one 3rd/4th grade tackle football team we did not feel the need to issue ID badges; and since the commissioner was one of the coach’s security was not an issue. However, our 5th grade Division 1 tackle football team (due to their traveling throughout Atlanta to compete) coaches was issued and required to wear their ID badge for security purposes at all times. The ID Badges will ensure that each coach has met the NFLYFL requirements to coach our players. These requirements are as followed:
