If you’re a high school football coach in a state that has been sidelined until next year due to the coronavirus pandemic, the National Football League wants to get you ready for the Spring high school football season.
The NFL, in partnership with the Buffalo Bills, Carolina Panthers, Chicago Bears, New England Patriots, New York Giants, New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles and the Washington Football Club, is working with NFL Legend Joe Ehrmann and Change the Arc to produce a four-part virtual training series called InsideOut Coaching High School Football. The first training session will be held Tuesday, October 27.
This four-part, 75-minute, training opportunity will provide coaches with an InSideOut Game Plan for Creating a Transformational Team Culture and the InSideOut Student Curriculum. It is being funded by the NFL Foundation and is open to high school football coaches in Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Virginia.
Currently 36 states are playing high school football, with 14 states plus, Washington, D.C. waiting until after the first of the year to play the 2020 regular season.
