Coaching Requirements

West Seattle Junior Football & Cheer have great coaches, but we could always use more. We welcome anyone who has the desire and commitment to make a positive impact on the youth in our community. If you’re interested in coaching, review the five requirements below and contact us.

Coaching Requirements

  1. Commit to the Wildcats program and philosophy.
  2. Pass the background check.
  3. Read and sign this Coach's Code of Conduct.
  4. Register and attend NJFL Certification Training.

More info about each requirement is below.

Committing to the Program

Our programs require coaches to run the same offense and defense at every level. We have a strict coach conduct policy; there's absolutely no profanity on the field.  Our coaches do this because they want to, not because they have to.

Background Checks

The background check is the first step of the process. It is conducted by NJFL. PeopleTrail is the company conducting the checks.

The background check info goes to the NJFL Executive board who determines if a coach passes the check.

The adjudication used is the USA Football standard and flags any felony, violent crime, drug related crime, sexual related crime, or crimes involving a minor.

Coach's Code of Conduct

Each coach signs the Code of Conduct. Our coaches hold each other accountable, and this is point of pride for our franchise.

NJFL Certification

NJFL is currently evaluating new certification programs.  Stay tuned for details regarding this.
