USA Football

UpdatedThursday March 14, 2019 byChris Hillson.

Cheshire Junior Football and Cheerleading is a member of the Shoreline Youth Football Conference.  SYFC requires all of our coaches to take classes through USA Football. USA Football's Coaching Education Program (CEP) is designed to train coaches who are responsible for the on-field development of youngsters, ages 5-14, playing organized youth and tackle football.  USA Football in conjunction with the NFL created the "Heads Up Football" program as a model on how to educate coaches. In addition, CJF and the SYFC mandates at least one member of each coaching staff goes through the CIAC High School Coaches Training module. CJF requires all coaches to be trained, at no cost to the coach. All coaches and volunteers for CJF/CJC will be required to complete a background check for the 2019 season. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact any member of the CJF board.
