All Coaches here at Port St. Lucie Football and Cheer Inc. are certified through the USA Football and have passed a complete background check. The certification is obtained by attending an online instructional course. Tackle Head Coaches must have been an assistant in the league for one season before becoming a head coach. All coaches must maintain current membership status with the USA Football to be on the sidelines during games.
