NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL COACHES ALLIANCE

POWERED BY USA FOOTBALL

UNITES COACHING COMMUNITY

 

(Indianapolis) High school coaches associations spanning 37 states and USA Football today announced the formation of the National High School Football Coaches Alliance. This newly created Alliance will foster frequent and meaningful collaboration between its members, advance best practices across high school football and to unite and serve the high school football coaching community.

 

The High School Football Coaches Alliance, led by state high school coach association directors, seeks to provide access to unique and progressive professional development and continuing education platforms, digital and physical coaching tools and communication vehicles extending beyond state and regional borders.

 

Coaches association leaders convened in January at the 2018 USA Football National Conference in Orlando, Florida. The group met with USA Football to discuss forming the Alliance, benefitting their members and football-playing student athletes nationwide.

 

“This is a significant ‘first’ for high school football,” said Oregon Athletic Coaches Association Executive Director ROB YOUNGER, who will serve as the inaugural president of the Alliance. Younger worked as an Oregon high school educator and football coach for more than 40 years. “The Alliance will bring coaches together in ways we’ve not seen before and will strengthen our community through USA Football’s exceptional and vast coaching resources.”

 

“Helping form and assist the Alliance is consistent with how we have served the high school coaching family for years,” said USA Football CEO SCOTT HALLENBECK. “This is a community formed by coaches for coaches. They are teachers and mentors – their work is self-giving and inspires student-athletes to be their best both on the field and off it. The formation of this Alliance presents a powerful opportunity for us all to share and learn from each other to keep football growing and moving forward.”

 

The Alliance’s physical and digital platforms will be powered by USA Football, the sport’s national governing body and the only member of the U.S. Olympic Committee dedicated solely to football. Supporters of the Alliance include the National High School Athletic Coaches Association and the National Organization of Coaches Association Directors.
