Coaches Registration

Below are links for parents to register to be coaches this upcoming season.  If you are registering to become a Tackle Football coach there will be a link at the bottom of the registration to complete the USA Football Tackling Certification.  This is at no cost to coaches.  Coaches will also at some point receive an email from Peopletraill to sign up for a background check which all tackle and flag coaches must complete.  The background check will also be at no charge to coaches.  Finally, there will be a MANDATORY coaches meeting for all tackle football coaches on Monday, August 6th beginning at 7 pm at Purpur Arena.  A light meal will be provided beginning at 6:30 that evening.  If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact Paul Strande at:  ggfyfdirector@gmail.com
