U.S. National Teams, part of America’s only National Team Program, provide a unique opportunity for current NCAA and high school football coaches to work alongside former NFL coaches and players — overseeing the development of top youth and high school football athletes and leading our teams in international competition.
If you coach youth or high school football athletes who deserve a chance to play with the best, in a non-club program, nominate them for an invitation to a Regional Development Camp to learn from top high school coaches, current NCAA coaches and former pro athletes and possibly earn a chance to represent their country on the football field.
Active NCAA and high school football coaches lead two-day non-contact training and competition camps for athletes in sixth through 11 grades, helping to select promising athletes for spots within the National Team program.
Following the Regional Development Camps, current NCAA and high school coaches lead teams during three- or five-day programs where athletes compete in contact or non-contact games and practices.
The next step is the selection of athletes and coaches to represent the United States in officially sanctioned international tackle football games against other countries’ national teams — including the annual North American Championship with Canada and the International Bowl against Canada and Japan.
The highest honor for both football players and coaches is to be named as part of the Under-19 U.S. National Team, which competes for gold medals in eight-nation tournaments held every two years in countries around the world.
