Requirements for Coaches

Hopefully, this page will outline the steps necessary for you to follow to be a part of our team.

For Tackle Football

1) Go to and sign up for a coaching membership. Using the user name and password you create, come back to our site and go through our online registration process as a coach (using the button "Coach Registration" on the right side of the page). The Online Registration page will take you through this process.

2) Using your newly created USA Football membership, go to and use your coaching membership to complete the Youth Tackle Coach Certification (or recertification if you are a returning coach) if you are going to be a coach in the middle school or high school program. When you have completed this courses, please print out a copy of your certificate and turn it in to the head coach for our files.

3) Continue under For ALL Coaches

For Flag Football

1) You will sign up to be a coach using our website only; using the same user name and password created to get your child registered for flag football, you will follow the instructions in the other link for coach registration on our home page. Optionally, you can also go to USA Football at and get a coaching membership as a Flag Football coach; this offers you a lot of new and useful information to help you be a better coach (we hope to make this mandatory in the future).

2) Using your newly created membership, you should try (although not mandatory) to complete the Flag Coaching Certification Course offered by USA Football. When you have completed this course, please print out a copy of your certificate and turn it in to the league Commissioner for our files.

3) Continue Below

For ALL Coaches:

1) You will need to complete a background check (we use People Trail, the organization currently recommended by USA Football, for this service); please take care of this immediately because we cannot allow you to participate until this process is completed:

  • Using the "Contact Us" link to the right, send a message to us with your name, email address and the age group you will be coaching

  • In the next few days, you will receive an email from Aroostook Huskies Football Club and Background Questionnaire Notification in the subject line

  • Follow the instructions contained in the email from People Trail to complete the process

  • Your cost for the check (good for two years) will be $40.50

  • Only if your check comes back with no adverse findings, we will reimburse you $20 of your cost

  • We will receive a full report from People Trail (note that you consent to this in the process of signing up for your background check)

  • If you have adverse findings, you have the option to either step away from involvement in our program or request in writing to our President that our Board confidentially review the information and make a final determination. Not all adverse incidents are necessarily disqualifying, but those involving children or demonstrating impulse control issues are certain to be disqualifying.

2) You will need to review the Coach's Code of Conduct; you acknowledge and accept this document when you complete your registration.

Please write down or remember your user name and password. You will use these as long as you are a part of our organization and as long as you are a USA Football member.

As a returning coach:

1) Using your user name and password, log into your account on our page and register as a coach for the current season.

2) Go to and use your coaching membership and take the same courses listed above. Please print out your completed certificates and turn in copies to the head coach.

3) Your background check is good for two years. If you completed it successfully last season, you may skip this step. If you completed it longer ago, you will need to follow the instructions above and complete a background check.

4) Review the Coach's Code of Conduct; remember that you've accepted this document as part of your registration.
