Coaches Information

UpdatedWednesday July 20, 2022 byChristine Pulsifer.

“What I enjoyed most this year about coaching football was seeing the boys simultaneously gain confidence as individuals and as a team.  The more confidence they gained as individuals the more they realized they needed each other in order to be successful.”                                                       

                                       ~Ben Cutone     




Being a full volunteer league, we are in need of coaches for all levels of Flex Football, Tackle Football, and Cheer.    

Fill out this online form or download and complete the NSYFCA Coaching Application located at the bottom of the page and submit it to the VP of Football or VP of Cheer.   All coaches will also need to do a yearly background check.


Below is a list of resources and exams that are part of the qualification process for a coaching position within the NSYFCA. The final list of required certifications will be distributed to accepted coaches prior to the season.
