The Texas Amateur Athletic Federation (TAAF) requires all youth sports coaches to pass a nationally accredited background check and strongly encourages all coaches to receive training. The National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) is the official coach training partner of TAAF.
TAAF Members have several options to meet the requirements. Starting this fall, TAAF requests all Member Cities to submit their youth coach background check and training preferences using this form - TAAF NAYS Acknowledgement and Preferences Form.
Please carefully review the options and select your TAAF Member City’s preferences. Once you have completed the form, please return it to TAAF by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you have questions about any of the NAYS options, you may contact Jesse Kopp with NAYS at email@example.com or 1-800-688-5437 ext 220.
