Want to be a SVYFA Football Coach?

  • The Smithson Valley Youth Football Association (SVYFA) is seeking head coaches and assistant coaches for our youth football program for the upcoming 2017 season. 

The purpose of SVYFA program is to promote teamwork, self esteem, and confidence, while teaching the fundamentals of football.    While prior football coaching experience is helpful, it is not a requirement.  We will provide the tools necessary to be a successful coach no matter what your experience level is.  And you do not have to have a child in the program to volunteer.  Prior coaches include retirees,  grandparents, and other individuals who enjoy the game of football and giving back to their community.  If you are a college student seeking to become a coach in the future, coaching youth football is a great way to gain valuable experience while at the same time creating a positive influence on the children you are leading.  The only requirements are that coaches must be at least 18 years of age and pass a background check.  We will also interview prospective coaches and they will become a participant in the USA Football Heads Up program. 

SVYFA is committed to ensuring a positive youth football experience and advancing player safety this fall by providing league-wide coaching education through USA Football’s Heads Up Football program.  Every SVYFA coach will be trained in Heads Up Football techniques before leading teams.  All SVYFA coaches and assistant coaches will complete USA Football accredited Level I Coach Certification Courses, which include CDC concussion recognition and response to protocols, proper helmet and shoulder pad fitting and Heads Up tackling techniques. 

Anyone interested in this exciting opportunity to serve the youth of our community please contact Max Boyd at or 210-831-2766.
