USA Football Coach Certification

Pop Warner coaches must complete the USA Football Youth Coach Certification to be certified for the season. The goal for all of us is to ensure that all Pop Warner coaches are certified by USA Football to teach proper blocking/defeating blocks and tackling techniques in a better and safer way. The certification also covers health and safety, anti-abuse training, an overview of the Football Development Model, and more.

Here are the basic steps for your local Pop Warner Associations to enroll with USA Football, and for coaches to access and complete the USA Football Youth Coach Certification:

  • Association President/Commissioner becomes a free member of USA Football.
  • President/Commissioner completes a brief online application to enroll the organization with USA Football.
  • Once enrolled, a USA Football Regional Manager will reach out to cover payment options and steps for coaches.
  • All Pop Warner coaches (head and assistants) must complete the USA Football Youth Coach Certification at $15 per coach.
  • Once certified a coach will have access to USA Football’s Player Progression Guide, Contact Manual, Practice Plans, and other resources to use throughout the season.

USA Football will have a representative at each of our eight Regional Meetings to discuss the process and answer any questions.

Pop Warner’s number one priority has always been the safety of our participants. Working with USA Football’s Football's certification program is an important step in delivering a safer program to all of our Pop Warner players.
