Coaches Corner

You have taken on one of the most beautiful, powerful, and influential positions a person can ever have. Some people may call it a job, and others a profession, but in reality, being a great coach is not that at all. It is so much more than that.

By becoming a coach, you have chosen to work with young athletes. You have chosen to guide them through the trials and tribulations of learning two beautiful games: sport and life. You are in a position to change their lives forever, not only by making them better athletes, but better people. You are a leader, you are a role model, you are a person who serves your athletes, and you are a person to whom they entrust their physical and emotional well-being.

Never take this responsibility lightly.


We are excited that you are interested in coaching a football team or cheer squad in the Danville Junior Football and Cheer League.  There are a few requirements that must be met in order to be considered for this task.  There are 3 online courses that must be taken for football and 2 online courses that must be taken for cheer.

  1. Concussion in sports.  (Football and Cheer)
  2. Heat illness prevention. (Football and Cheer)
In addition to these courses, you must have had a background check performed and on file with the DJFL.  We would like to remind anyone that will be working with our kids that being allowed to coach is a privilege.  We hold our coaches to a high standard as they are chosen to be leaders for our kids to look up too. 

We expect that our coaches will:

  1. Maintain a positive attitude.
  2. Coach and enforce safe playing habits.
  3. Refrain from using vulgar language.
  4. Refrain from using tobacco products at practice or games.
  5. Treat all players, opposing coaches, opposing fans, officials, and league members with respect.

If these expectations are not met, you can be removed from your coaching position.
