Volunteer Coaches

VOLUNTEER COACHES ARE PARENTS. We appreciate their time and effort while helping and encouraging our young athletes.


A coach is placed on the team associated with their player.


In the event a team does not have any volunteers to register, NJ Flag will email the team asking for parents to volunteer. If a parent does not volunteer within a week before the official game start date, a NJ Flag representative will coach the team until a parent is available.


Practices are completely at the coaches discretion. We ask that teams practice at least once a week. Furthermore, coaches need to establish clear communication with the team and parents.

NJ Flag has a primary coaches meeting explaining all flag rules before the season begins. We also provide resources like the official PDF copy of the NFL Flag Rule Book and starter playbooks.
