Attention Wilton Flag Football Coaches
ALL parents who would like to be a Head Coach or Assistant coach MUST complete the Coach Certifications and Registration Process outlined below. Please be sure to save all your confirmation numbers and certificates on your desktop because you will be entering and uploading them in step 2 on the WYF website:
1. BACKGROUND CHECK (ALL COACHES)
To submit your background check please go to: http://coeusglobal.com/yfbca_wiltonyf.html
- WYF will pay for the cost of the background check directly unless you click the box to choose to pay for it yourself. There will be no reimbursements should you click the wrong box.
- Please write down the 6 digit number that you will be assigned at the end of the background check process. You will need this number as proof of performance to enter in step 4 below.
- If you complete the background check but do not have a confirmation number, enter "LOOK UP" in the WYF Coach Registration in Step 2 below.
- If you already completed the background check as part of your Tackle Coach registration, enter "TACKLE" in the confirmation number field on the WYF Coach Registration in step 2.
2. Register on the WYF website and enter all the above certification information. (ALL COACHES)
Here is the link to register as a Flag coach and to enter all your certification information on the WYF website:
