Information, District Representatives and Nomination Form:
Hi Fellow Coaches:
I trust this note finds you well.
I’m writing to inform you that USA Football will host its annual National Conference for high school football coaches in Orlando, February 22-24, 2019.
I will be in attendance to represent our Coaches Association at several sessions throughout the weekend and I hope you’ll join me in Orlando at USA Football’s National Conference.
This Conference unites football coaches from some of the largest and most influential high school programs in the United States. More than 1,500 individuals from all areas of football gained knowledge and networking value from this event last year. I encourage you to take a peek at http://nationalconference.usafootball.com/alliance/ to see some of the speakers and networking opportunities.
Here are a few things you can expect:
• Network and meet with fellow coaches and administrators from across the country
• Explore Xs and Os with leaders in football from high school and collegiate levels
• Have direct access to experts in health and safety as well as organizational leadership
• Master advanced techniques and fundamentals during USA Football “Live Field” demonstrations
I cannot stress enough that this is more than a clinic. If you take part in one coaching conference per year, make it this one.
Sessions throughout the weekend will include a variety of topics important to the high school football landscape such as coaching education, player development and scheme. Additionally, you will be exposed to the latest football trends, new innovations and equip you with the facts regarding health and safety as it pertains to football from some of the most recognized medical and research experts in the industry.
While you’ll have plenty of sessions to help you master schemes and technique, you’ll also gain valuable insight into ways to make your program and community better.
As a member of our Coaches Association, you can save over 30% on the registration with code ALLIANCE79 by registering at https://nationalconference.usafootball.com/register-today/.
Additionally, our coaches have access to a discounted room block at the Orlando World Center Marriott through USA Football’s travel partner, Anthony Travel. Anthony Travel will follow-up with you following registration with details about staying at the Conference host hotel.
Again, this is an exciting opportunity for us to meet and network with our peers at all levels nationwide.

Louisiana Football Coaches Association Partners with Team Issue to Provide the Official Football of the LFCA.
DALLAS, TX — February 5, 2018 — The Louisiana Football Coaches Association (LFCA) are excited to announce a major step forward for all High Schools in Louisiana. The LFCA recently voted to remove an old state adoption policy which previously required playoff bound teams to use a specific football. In many cases, this may have been a different ball than the one they had used all year. Players and coaches were frustrated with this policy, so the LFCA took action to change it.
Louisiana High Schools are now allowed to play with any brand of football, including during the playoffs and championship games. Louisiana coaches have selected Team Issue footballs, which are already in use at many high schools across the state, as their official game football of choice. Louisiana High School coaches are able to work directly with Team Issue to get their team game footballs for the upcoming workouts and fall season.
This partnership offers Louisiana High Schools more than just an outstanding football. When high schools purchase their game footballs from Team Issue, a portion of the proceeds will be returned directly to the LFCA so they may continue to grow and develop the sport statewide. Team Issue has also agreed to donate footballs to popular programs including the Louisiana All-Star games.
About Team Issue
High school coaches and players nationwide have discovered the greatness of a unique design that features their team. Now with multiple leathers, shapes, stripe options, lace choices, and hundreds of configurations, Team Issue offers complete customization. Team Issue footballs can be custom tailored to fit individual players and teams while remaining compliant with NFHS specifications.
Big Game USA, which is based in Dallas, Texas and is the supplier of choice for many college football teams around the nation, is the exclusive distributor for Team Issue. Which means, Team Issue footballs are expertly handcrafted right here in the US using the finest materials and the industry’s highest quality control standards.
Chris Calandro, CEO of Team Issue, was born and raised in Louisiana and is a graduate of LSU. He and his team recently donated footballs to many of the schools affected by the 2016 Louisiana floods so they could continue to play the sport we all love.
“Making the best football on earth has been a lifelong passion for me, and to see Team Issue footballs chosen in my home state as the best football for their kids is a dream come true.” - Chris Calandro
