Our adult coaches are all unpaid volunteers who are usually parents of current or former Falcons Travel Football players with extensive youth coaching experience and/ or high-school/collegiate tackle football experience. Our coaches make a significant commitment to the program and to the development and safety of young football players and cheerleaders. All coaches are required to acknowledge a Code of Conduct and to submit a third-party background check. All Falcons football coaches also are required to be initially certified and recertified through USA Football (see “Safety” below). As part of our commitment to promoting leadership and community spirit, we often engage teen junior coaches, who are qualified Maine South High School football players to assist our adult coaching volunteers at camps, practices or games as needed.
