Coach and Volunteer Qualifications

Minimum Qualifications for Coaches and Volunteers

Beginning with the 2016 Fall season, TSYFL staying up with the changing times has enacted a more stringent qualification to coach or volunteer our youth in football and cheer.

Each person age 18 or older wishing to coach or volunteer with a team or organization which has signed with TSYFL  will need to meet the minimum requirements.

  1.  All Coaches and Volunteers must consent to a background check, and be approved that they do not meet any of the "Disqualification Criteria".  Visit the Background Check tab to the left for more information.
  2. All Coaches and Volunteers must certify with National Association of Youth Sports annually.  Visit the NAYS tab to the left for more information.
  3. All Coaches must certify with USA Football annually.  Please see the USA Football tab to the left for more information.

 All Coaches and Volunteers who are unsure of their "background" should first proceed with a background check prior to submitting for either the NAYS or USA Football certifications. Please review the 'Disqualifications", so that you save all time and money.

Note: Volunteers include: team moms, team managers, team assistants, photographers, videographers, first aid, and any person who will be around the minors who is a volunteer of the organization.

All Coaches, Volunteers must comply and have the above items on file in order to receive a TSYFL "Field Pass"
