Heads Up Football Certification

Heads up Football has become a major push for Bert Bell.  It is directly tied to all the insurance and certifications.  Bert Bell has instituted a mandatory coaches certification.  All coaches will need to be certified in order to take the field. 

Bert Bell league reps will be monitoring this and responsible for verifying every coach has obtained their certification.  The league reps have been instructed to go to the fields during the first week of practice and verify all certifications. 

The major reason for this certification is if we have the coaches certified we will receive a 25% discount off our insurance.

For returning coaches, please log in to your USA football account and complete your re-certification.

For new coaches, please go to, register and complete the certification.  Please email your certificate of completion to

Thank you for completing this program and we look forward to another successful RRYFC season.
