PYFL requires Association coaches to be USA Football certified. As per USAF, "Whether you’re a veteran coach or it’s your first time on the sidelines, the Tackle certification is a great resource. It’ll let you step on the field armed with the knowledge and ability to develop good habits in your players and keep them safer. Key topics include:
- Concussion Awareness
- Heat and Hydration
- Sudden Cardiac Arrest
- Shoulder Tackling and Blocking
- Equipment fitting.
And the Tackle certification meets the certification requirement for Heads Up Football youth leagues."
