Chardon Youth Football



Thank you for your interest in coaching with Chardon Youth Football. I applaud you for your commitment to our young student-athletes. Your efforts will ensure a successful season as you help mold our young people. Realize that there is no greater responsibility than taking a leadership position as a coach, mentor, and role model for boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 12. Those years are riddled with physical, emotional, and intellectual changes and development. You have the opportunity to actively participate at one of the most important points in these children's lives. Don't take this role lightly, but enjoy the times you spend with your own children and those of the community this fall.

To be considered for a coaching position please register your child for the coming season, when asked if you wish to be a "Volunteer coach" select "yes" and fill in the required questions.
