Our coaches are some of the most important people in our organization. The success of the Eastside Blaze football program is directly tied to the ability of our coaches to help players improve their skills, perform their best, develop strong character and gain confidence.

To become a coach for Eastside Blaze start by visting City of St. Paul Youth Coaches Corner, then contact and let us know you are interested. 

Eastside Youth Athletic Association is a certified USA Football Heads Up organization. In order to maintain our certification, all EYAA coaches must also complete additional training to become a USA Football Level 1 certified coach. 

Beginning with the 2018 football season, EYAA will provide coaching manuals for each certified coach to aid in practice planning and development of player skills during a mandatory coaches meeting conducted by Eastside Blaze board members.
