Coaching Information

CYFL is a volunteer league which is only possible with the dedication of its coaches, officials, and volunteers.

Coaching is a very rewarding way to be involved in your community. A coach assumes the responsibility of doing everything neccesary to ensure that the children he is coaching will have an enjoyable and safe experience, while learning the fundamentals and skills of football. Fun and Fundamentals are the keys to coaching success, and being a coach in the Columbia Youth Football League requires a commitment of time, energy and patience.


All applicants will be required to attend a pre-certification course, pass a background check, and complete the USA Football Coaches Certification. If you are interested in helping teach kids the fundamentals of football, please contact the Commissioner immediately!
