Nov. 30, 2017 – The fifth annual USA Football National Conference will return to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, Jan. 26-28, for the second consecutive year. The event is the nation’s largest annual gathering of high school and youth football administrators and coaches, uniting more than 1,000 participants for three days of professional and program development during an exciting series of events during the NFL’s Pro Bowl Week.
Speakers addressing National Conference attendees include Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver CRIS CARTER, Villanova University Director of Athletics MARK JACKSON, National High School Hall of Fame coach CHUCK KYLE of Cleveland St. Ignatius H.S., four-time state champion head coach JASON MOHNS of Scottsdale (Ariz.) Saguaro H.S., Southern Methodist University head coach CHAD MORRIS, and Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker and Super Bowl XX Champion MIKE SINGLETARY.
A member of the U.S. Olympic Committee and the sport’s national governing body, USA Football trains more high school and youth coaches combined than any organization in the United States. Its annual National Conference is an education and networking opportunity for administrators and coaches to gain insight on best practices, innovation, game planning and strategy and smarter play. In 2017, the conference drew leaders from across the sport, including international guests from Canada, Kenya, Nigeria and Panama.
“Football stands on innovation and perpetual learning, which comprise the heart of our National Conference,” USAFootball CEO and Executive Director SCOTT HALLENBECK said. “Orlando is an extraordinary host for the football family and we look forward to exciting, expert-driven insight that will be gained there in January as leaders in our sport gather to advance football together.”
