The Lake Zurich Flames Youth Football Organization has been a part of the community for nearly 50 years! As one of the area’s top football and cheer programs, we are committed to teaching fundamentals. This includes sportsmanship, teamwork, cooperation, fair play, character building, and above all else, FUN! Uniquely, we are an all-volunteer program, including our coaches. Every year we ask that anyone who has interest in supporting their child and the rest of the players in our program to register to be a Flames tackle coach. You do not have to be an ex-athlete. You do not have to be a master at Xs and Os. All you need is the desire to help kids grow!
We need coaches at every playing level this year. This includes our flag football program and our tackle football program. All of our coaches must pass a background check, be USA Football certified (we will provide details when you register) and attend an on-line Positive Coaching Alliance seminar.
Our Coaching Committee will be available to provide guidance with practice plans and playbooks. Additionally, there are an abundance of assistant coaches staffed at each level. Please consider becoming a head coach to help ensure that all of our players get the best football experience possible. If you do not have a child currently in our program but are interested in head coaching, please reach out!! If you are already registered as an assistant coach but would like to head coach, please express your interest.
