Coach for the Red Knights Football or Cheerleading! 

We are always looking for quality youth football and cheerleading coaches and assistant coaches who have a desire to give back to the game of football or the sport of cheerleading!

Applications, criminal background checks and child abuse clearances are required for all football and cheerleading coaches and assistant coaches. Bert Bell Memorial Conference's background check program is handled though the National Center for Safety Initiatives (NCSI).

Upon approval, each coach and assistant coach will receive a League ID Card with photo to wear at all games.

Coaching Responsibilities:

  • Provide an enjoyable experience. Sports should be fun. Even if nothing else is accomplished, make certain your players or cheerleaders have fun.
  • Provide a safe experience. You are responsible for planning and teaching activities in such a way that the progression between activities minimizes risks.
  • Teach basic skills. In becoming a coach, you take on the role of educator. You must teach all of your players or cheerleaders the fundamental skills and strategies necessary for success in the sport of football or cheerleading.

Football

Time dedication, character and integrity are a must. Football experience is preferred for the older teams, but not required for the younger teams or for assistant coaches.

Heads Up Football℠ is the new standard for football leagues that can be achieved through implementing USA Football’s organizational membership program highly focused on four key areas:
