Coaches Training

Training

The EWFL, and the Durham Firebirds, utilize the USA Football Heads Up Program. Under this program, all coaches must complete USA Football Level 1 training and become certified.

Player Safety Coach

Additionally, each 
township may designate a Player Safety Coach (PSC) whereby he or she must attend and complete a one-day USA Football training session. Once the PSC satisfactorily completes the training, he or she, in turn, will hold a similar training session for all program coaches and an information session for the parents to educate on the importance of safety in football fundamental to the mission of USA Football. These requirements must be completed by August 1st of each season and receive positive confirmation from the league. A violation of this requirement shall be considered HARSH under the league enforcement rules. 

Background Screening

Mandatory background screening for all coaches, assistant coaches, and administrative volunteers is required in order to participate in the EWFL, on an annual basis. Each organization shall be required to submit background screens in accordance with National Council of Youth Sports Recommended Guidelines: The Gold Standard of Best Practices for Background Screening and Managing Risk In Non-Profit Youth-Serving Organizations (www.ncys.org) before the subject person is allowed to participate in program activities, practices, and/or games as coach or volunteer. A violation of this requirement shall be considered WILLFUL under the league enforcement rules.
