NEYSA Selected to Participate in USA Football’s Pilot Football Development Model program
NEYSA along with five other leagues, nationwide, will participate with USA Football in this unique Pilot program that is intended to create a national model to develop comprehensive training program for coaches that will lead to instructing and mentoring our youth athletes. This will include developing a base of athleticism by testing and assessing each athlete at the beginning and the end of each season to demonstrate their individual progress as well as teaching learning skills to the athletes. This model is intended to teach age appropriate skills and create a learning environment that is developed based upon their fitness and physical literacy.
