For the third consecutive year, USA Football will host Blitz events nationwide in partnership with NFL teams. These fun, free family events feature exciting youth football clinics and giveaways. Several Blitz events will also offer coach certification clinics to prepare coaches for the upcoming season.
Blitz events celebrate the fun, excitement and fitness of one of America’s most popular youth sports. Each event features an exciting Fan Fest area, which will include a wide array of possible attractions such as balloon art, DJs, food trucks, inflatables, photo booths, youth flag clinics and other elements provided by the local NFL team.
Specific Blitz events will offer USA Football’s youth coach certification. Accredited by the United States Center for Coaching Excellence, USA Football’s certification addresses topics to help coaches become better teachers and provide safe, positive football experiences for their teams. More than one million coach certifications have been completed since USA Football began certifying coaches.
