AYF Coaching Tools


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.


Risk Management


Concussion Awareness:

There is no band aid solution to the concussion issue which exists at every level of play. To ensure the well being of young athletes, AYF continues to insist on proper instruction by competent coaches and most important, in a culture of good sportsmanship.


For the 2015 season:


All AYF/AYC Coaches are required to pass the Concussion Test at www.CDC.Gov (Center of Disease Control) offered free of charge.
