2018 SYFA Coach Application


Welcome to the 2018 Shakopee Youth Football Coach Application.  By completing this application, you hereby agree to read, understand and abide by the regulations as set forth by the Shakopee Youth Football Association  (found on the Shakopee Football website under the tab Coaches - Rules and Policies), including the following:

  • The SYFA Coaches Code of Ethics
  • Coaches Discipline Policy
  • The Playing Rules for the grade you wish to coach

Shakopee Youth Football Coaching Contracts are valid for one year from the date they are completed and signed.

All coaches, head and assistant, MUST register with Trusted Coaches (link provided at the end of  this application). No coach candidate will be considered until both the SYFA Application and the Trusted Coaches Membership/Renewal are completed.   The Trusted Coaches is a one stop shop to complete:

  • Nationwide background check (done annually)
  • Concussion and first aid training
  • Positive Coaching Alliance Double-Goal Coach course
  • USA Football Heads Up coaches training

This training is to provide some consistency around football fundamentals and safety across SYFA's coaching population.  This training takes about 1.5 - 2 hours. (May take up to 4 hours)

After completing this Application and Trusted Coaches, you will be in the running to coach.  Once the applications are complete,  the SYFA Board will meet and formally discuss and vote on each coach for each grade. If you do not make it as a coach this year, please stay active in the association by volunteering wherever you can.   We value your desire to coach and thank you for stepping up to the commitment.  

The information provided in this application is secure and will not be shared without further notice.
