USA Football / Certification Instructions for 2022

All NYO football coaches must be certified each season through USA Football.  Please get started with the certification process right away so that you will be finished prior to working with players in August.  The good news is that the course for those who were certified last season is much shorter this season.

The length of the course will vary on whether you were certified last season.  For those who took the course last year, we are told the time to re-certify will be much shorter this year.

Directions for getting started with the certification follows:

  • Go to USA Football Youth Certification
  • Click on "Get Certified"
  • Select Game Type (Flag or Youth Tackle)
  • Type in promo code: NORTHSIDEYO22
  • Click "Update Price"
  • Click "Sign Up For Course!"
  • Start Certification

NYO pays for the course by providing a Promo Code.  Coaches must associate with NYO in order to use the Promo code and have the certification results provided to NYO.  To associate with NYO follow these directions:

  • Log in to their USA Football account
  • Go to the “Organizations” tab on their dashboard
  • Scroll down to “Find New Organization”
  • Enter Northside Youth Organization Inc underneath “League Name” and click “Search Organizations”
  • Once, Northside Youth Organization Inc is listed, they will click “Associate”

The full Youth Coach Certification is currently a three-hour course, and will cover the topics below. The recertification will take 30-90 minutes, depending on what a coach completed last year.

  • Health and Safety
  • Abuse Prevention (every other year)
  • Foundations of Transformational Coaching
  • Foundations of Quality Coaching
  • Principles of Contact (for contact coaches only)

If you have problems call our USA Football representative at 407-848-9090.
