Rec. Fall Football

OVERVIEW
The AJAA Football Committee, USA Football, and AJAA are committed to ensuring a positive youth football experience. We provide league-wide benefits for AJAA players, parents, and coaches through USA Football’s Heads Up Program. Indianapolis-based USA Football and the AJAA have been partners since 2011. USA Football is the sport’s national governing body and is the official youth football development partner of the NFL and its 32 teams.

All coaches are prepared to lead their teams by completing a 15-chapter coaching education course on usafootball.com, encompassing how to best teach football fundamentals, communicating with players and player health and safety, including concussion education and management.
