2020 NATIONAL CONFERENCE
February 21-23, 2020
An Immersive Experience into the Football Development Model
You’re invited to join USA Football and top youth football organization leaders for an immersive experience into the Football Development Model (FDM). Learn how to implement and effectively operate the FDM for your organization.
Deep Dive into FDM
The Framework for 21st Century Football
The Football Development Model is USA Football’s framework for long-term athlete development, using scientifically-based guidelines to help develop better people, better athletes and better football players.
USA Football is working with its FDM Council to open more paths to the game and improve upon existing ones. Players will learn in an age-appropriate way, building confidence and enthusiasm for an inspired football journey through better experiences.
These featured sessions are some of the topics that will be covered at National Conference.
For the Love of the Game: Increasing and Maintaining Youth Sport Participation
Each football season brings the opportunity for growth and development. Strive for diversity and strengthen your community connection for greater success.
Having players and parents from one season return for the next is an important measurement for your program’s success and having new families participate is an even higher goal. USA Football staff and grassroots league leaders discuss how to grow your program and communicate the benefits of 21st century football to a new generation of families.
How USA Football Can Help Your League Adopt and Implement FDM
Take the first steps toward creating an organizational strategy that will benefit your league as you look to the future.
Learn how to utilize the various Football Development Model resources and determine next steps as you consider what’s best for your league. We will provide insight and support into how you can adopt and implement this forward-thinking philosophy and take an in-depth look at what your coaches teach, how your players learn and what your parents need to know.
How Flag Football Can Build Better Football Players and Grow Participation
All of football’s core skills – from throwing and catching to blocking and tackling – have their roots in flag football. It’s a fun, fast-paced, exciting game that kids love playing.
Grow your player population and develop better athletes who have a stronger chance of success playing all versions of the game as they progress through your league. Additionally, generate a fresh revenue stream by either adding flag football or building upon the flag program you’ve already established.
