Since its establishment in 1922, the American Football Coaches Association has provided a forum for the discussion and study of all matters pertaining to football and coaching. It also works to maintain the highest possible standards in football and the coaching profession. These objectives—first declared by founders Major Charles Daly, Alonzo Stagg, John Heisman, and others—have been instrumental in the AFCA's becoming the effective and highly respected organization it is today.
The AFCA now has more than 10,000 members, including coaches from Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan, and Russia. Through annual publications and several newsletters, the association keeps members informed of the most current rule changes and proposals, proper coaching methods, innovations in techniques, insights in coaching philosophy, and business conducted by the board of trustees and AFCA committees. A convention is held each January to give members a special opportunity to exchange ideas and recognize outstanding achievement.
The association promotes safety in the sport and establishes strong ethical and moral codes that govern all aspects of football coaching. In addition, the AFCA is involved in numerous programs that ensure the integrity of the coaching profession and enhance the development of the game. The AFCA works closely with the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, the National Football League, the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame, Pop Warner, and other organizations involved in the game of football. Indeed, one of the goals of the association is to build a strong coalition of football coaches—Team AFCA—who speak out with a unified voice on issues that affect the sport and profession.
The AFCA is the team of the football coaching profession. All current and former football coaches or administrators involved with football are encouraged to join. For more information about becoming a member of the AFCA, please visit the AFCA Web site (www.afca.com) or write to the following address:

I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to improve their coaching skills.
So good I stop reading the kindle version and ordered the printed version so I could take notes and copy the play so I could use them.
For me I liked the different perspectives but the book as a whole wasn't as cohesive as it could have been.
Not great but good for the newer assistant coaches. Excellent for a first year head coach at the high school level, though.Published 8 months ago by GinoP

Easy to read.
Some stories were long winded.
Great advice, use a highlighter, you'll want to go back and reread the good stuff.
I was hoping for something that would help a first time coach in pop warner organize practice for 1st year tackle youth players. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Douglas Small
