Heads Up Football Certification

This year we are no longer using promo codes.  Everything, including the pricing for the certification, are tied to the organization’s name (Southeastern Virginia Pop Warner Football Conference).  I have set up your league so that all coaches will receive a $10 fee for their certification.  

In order for coaches to receive the $10 certification price, coaches must be correctly associated with their respective organization.  New coaches can accomplish this by entering the organization’s name into the search box during account creation, while recurring users will be able to login to their account again and have the option to automatically be associated with the organization from the previous year.  After they sign up or log in, they will be taken to their dashboard to purchase the certification. 

The biggest change to the HUF program this year involves two different ways for coaches to certify: online and in-person at our new coaches’ clinics.  Coaches can choose the option that works best for their time, learning style, and preference. 

With the implementation of the new coaches’ clinics we have made changes to the Player Safety Coach (PSC) aspect of the HUF program.  In years past we received feedback that commissioners have wanted to send multiple coaches to the PSC clinics and have limited them in order to provide enough space for all organizations.  This year we have opened these clinics up to all coaches who wish to attend the clinic and have allowed them to certify in-person in addition to the online option, forming the previously mentioned coaches’ clinics. Due to the expected volume at the clinics we are no longer mandating attendance at the clinics or tracking nominations for the designated PSC of a program.
