The future of the game of football starts at the youth level, and the Minnesota Vikings are fully investing in that. In a press release, the Vikings announced that they are providing more than 1,200 Minnesota youth football coaches with USA Football Youth Coach Certifications for 2023.

Brett Taber, the team’s vice president of social impact,  spoke about the partnership:

“A key initiative for the Vikings organization is to continue growing the game of football while teaching children the right way to play the game and showcasing the benefits of team sports,” said Taber. “We are honored to partner with USA Football to assist the youth coaches as they obtain their certification and the necessary curriculum and support they need to be exceptional teachers for the kids under their care.”

By partnering with USA Football, the Vikings are investing in the next generation learning the game of football in a fun and safe way.
