Coventry Youth Football & Cheer Organization


One of the essential functions of head and assistant coaches is to manage team communications with players and their families.  A major function for all coaches is to provide a fun and safe environment for all athletes while teaching the fundamentals of football and cheerleading.

All CYFO Football & Cheer Coaches are required to have a yearly background check on file with the Inter County Football League (ICFL).


Every tackle football coach for CYFO is required to take part in a series of trainings and certification tests on an annual basis. Again, these are annual requirements. NO COACH is permitted to take part in organized team activities without successful completion of the certification.

Provide a safe experience. You are responsible for planning and teaching fundamentals in such a way that it minimizes risks of injuries. Safety is our top priority!

Teach basic skills. In becoming a coach, you take on the role of educator. You must teach all athletes the fundamental skills and strategies necessary for success in the sport of football and cheer.

You should expect to put in the dedicated time required to review plays, attend practices and game days.
