        The Pueblo PAL has had a tradition of providing a top quality program to its members and to the community.  We have developed one of the most exciting and strongest youth football programs in the area.  Pueblo PAL is part of the Denver Broncos Youth Football Task Force and our program currently serves boys and girls in 3rd through 8th grade.  With support from you, our volunteers and our coaches, we look forward to enjoying many years of success and an increase in participation.

Schedules:
At this time the PPAL is working on making schedules for the regular season but there are several factors we have to consider when making the schedules. Once we have completed the schedules we will have them posted to the web site as soon as possible. Just so everyone is aware the first regular season games will be starting on either the 23rd and 24th of August or the 30th and 31st of August.



ALL PLAYERS MUST BE REGISTERED TO PLAY AND ALL COACHES MUST BE REGISTER TO COACH BEFORE THEY CAN TAKE THE FIELD TO PRACTICE. IF THEY ARE NOT REGISTERED THEY WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PRACTICE OR COACH UNTIL THEIR REGISTRATION IS COMPLETED!!!! HEAD COACHES IF YOU HAVE A PLAYER NOT REGISTERED WITH THE LEAGUE ON YOUR TEAM PLEASE TELL THEM TO DO SO. HEAD COACHES IF YOU HAVE A COACH ON YOUR STAFF WHO IS NOT REGISTERED PLEASE TELL THEM TO REGISTER SO WE DO NOT HAVE ANY ISSUES.



USA HEADS UP FOOTBALL COURSE FOR COACHES

To register for USA football and complete the course required follow the link provided below and fill out the registration form with your personal information to set up an account. I know it says the membership will cost $25.00 but it won’t.  When you get to the page where they ask for payment enter promo code pueblopal14. When you do this, the next page will tell you it’s free and you don’t owe anything.   Once you have set up your account they will send you an email that you have to click on and in the email it will have a link to activate your account.  Once the account is activated and you log back into the web site go to the take a course tab, click on it and it will bring up another page that says tackle course, click on that tab and take the course and test associated with it. Once you have completed the course and test print out your certification and get it to the PPAL.

If you already have an account set up through USA Football you still need to take the course and print out the certificate so that the PPAL can have it on file.

The course needs to be completed by all coaches and turned in no later than August 8th 2014 by 5 PM.  If the course is not taken and the PPAL does not have a certificate on file you will not be able to coach until it is completed. Please allow yourself plenty of time to complete the course because it will take some time to view all the videos and take the quizzes. 

Coaches, both the USA HEADS UP FOOTBALL COURSE and the NFHS CONCUSSION COURSE have to be completed.
