All flag, tackle and cheer coaches must complete background checks and football coaches must get the USA Football Certification.
All coaches (head and assistant) of flag football, tackle football and cheerleading must complete our background check. Please use the link below to begin the process. The background screening is completed by the National Center for Safety Initiatives, LLC (NCSI). Please read through each page carefully to ensure that all information is provided accurately. This registration requires a person to enter an accurate US Address.
Spring-Ford Youth Football and Cheer, in cooperation with USA Football, is striving to make football a safer game. With the addition of a dedicated USA Football Representative, all coaches are required to attend training and practice drills associated with safer tackling procedures.
USA Football’s Football Certification is a step-by-step protocol to teach the core principles of the skills and sets a new standard in player safety. The program utilizes fundamentals through a series of drills to reinforce proper tackling mechanics and to teach players how to properly tackle with a focus on reducing helmet contact.
To begin in the certification process, please go to USA Football and create an account, choosing the appropriate group (flag or tackle/ contactless or contact) and age group. Once the certification is complete, please print or email the certificate. A printed version can be given to our USA Football Representative or a board member and an emailed certificate can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
