USA Football offers the following Coach Certification Courses:

The Tackle Certification and Flag Certification courses serve as USA Football's Level 1 base certification courses for all youth tackle and flag coaches. These courses are set up to provide you with the education to develop your coaching philosophy, understanding of the game and the positions on the field, teaching the proper fundamentals and techniques, Heads Up Tackling, Concussion Awareness and more.
