USA Football
USA Football  was endowed by the NFL and NFL Players Association in 2002 and is composed of members – youth coaches, league commissioners and game officials – residing in all 50 states. USA Football is the Official Youth Football Development Partner of the NFL and NFLPA. The independent non-profit organization hosts more than 80 football training events annually offering education for coaches and game officials, skill development for players and resources for youth football league commissioners.

USA Football awards more than $1 million annually in equipment grants to youth football leagues and high school football programs based on merit and need. The organization also is the only sports entity to offer as much as $500,000 to subsidize youth leagues' volunteer background checks to help safeguard youth football participants and eradicate sexual predators from the youth football community.

Since 2006, USA Football has trained tens of thousands of youth football coaches across the U.S. through full-day coaching schools and its Certified Coaching Education Program (CCEP), a two-hour online curriculum featuring computer animation and chapter quizzes to strengthen comprehension.

USA Football also bolsters high school football, which more than doubles the next-played sport of high school boys. USA Football was commissioned by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), based in Indianapolis, to help create an online varsity football coaching education course available to the country's high school football coaches and state athletic associations.

USA Football exclusively assembles America's national teams for international competitions conducted by football's international federation (IFAF), which consists of more than 50 member countries spanning five continents.

Aside from its national team program, USA Football does not operate leagues or teams.

Carl Peterson, a successful football scout, coach and NFL team executive for more than 40 years, is USA Football's chairman.
