In 2013, head and assistant coaches must complete the registration process for coaching positions. Registration opens on June 1st and closes on July 15th or until all positions are filled. Thanks for your interest in coaching youth football this season.
If you are interested in serving as a head or assistant coach and have not completed the concussion certification please do so at this time and keep a copy of your electronic certifiicate as it will be needed to complete your coaching application this year. See instructions below.
BSLPAA now requires all head coaches to complete concussion training certification. The certification is free and is good for three years, but must be completed or verified by all coaches prior to their first contest of each season.
All coaches (head and assistants) and officials receive concussion training and education by September 1, 2011, and then at three-year intervals thereafter.
Coaches must remove an athlete from activity if they exhibit signs, symptoms or behaviors consistent with a concussion and/or are suspected of sustaining a concussion.
BSLPAA practices and games will be cancelled for severe weather (lightning is a main factor) or if fields have been subjected to prolonged wet/rainy conditions. Game cancellations will be posted on the home page of this Website. Games can and will be conducted in rainy conditions (if the weather is not severe). Each coach is allowed to use his/her discretion on canceling practices for any reason and is responsible for communicating the cancellation of practice(s) to parents.
