Youth Football Outreach
The Tennessee Titans are committed to the development of the game of football in our area, as well as the health and safety of all youth, high school and other amateur players. Each year, we host dozens of events that support this mission.
Read more about our annual events below.
Titans Youth Football Camps
Camps are designed for boys and girls of all experience levels, ages 6 to 14 years. Based on experience level and developmental goals, campers will select one of two instruction programs – comprehensive or accelerated.
Through non-contact instruction, all participants will run, throw, catch, defend, form-block, form-tackle and explode out of a stance with proper technique and improved speed. All campers will participate in USA Football’s Heads Up curriculum, designed for a better, safer approach to the game.
All camps are led by professional, USA Football-certified coaches with supplemental instruction from former Titans players.
High School Coach of the Week
Now in its fourth year, the High School Game of the Week initiative brings schools and communities together by inviting fans to participate in the selection of the Game of the Week.
Each week of the high school football season, four of the most competitive games across the state are nominated for Game of the Week. The matchup with the most votes receives the honor, with the winning head coach named the Coach of the Week.
Each Coach of the Week receives a $1,000 grant to benefit his football program. The Coach of the Year receives a $2,000 grant.
More than 2.9 million votes have been cast through TitansOnline.com in the first three years of the program, and more than $210,000 has been donated through the Coach of the Week and Coach of the Year program since 1999.
Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards
Hosted at Nissan Stadium each November, the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards are presented to the top high school players – and one kicker – in nine classifications of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA).
More than 400 people – including the 30 finalists, their families, coaches, school administrators and members of the media from all parts of the state – attended the 2017 luncheon and awards presentation.
Tennessee Titans High School Coaches Clinic
Each year, the Titans open their doors to area high school coaches eager to learn how things are done at the highest level. The clinic includes film sessions and instruction by Titans coaches and VIP viewing of a training camp practice.
7-on-7 Passing Tournament
More than 200 high school players and coaches turn out for this annual tournament, hosted at the team’s practice facility each July. The goal is to provide a platform for student-athletes to sharpen their athletic skills and prepare for the upcoming season in a non-contact environment against non-traditional opponents.
TSSAA Championship Breakfast and Media Day
Each year, media across the state gather at Nissan Stadium for a preview of the TSSAA State Championship game, including a breakfast honoring all 16 qualifying high schools, as well as their coaches and players.
High School Football Recruiting Fair
Each April, the Titans partner with the Tennessee Football Coaches Association to host the Tennessee Titans High School Football Recruiting Fair at Nissan Stadium. The event brings Tennessee high school coaches and top college football programs from the southeast together. Recruiters are able to watch film, evaluate transcripts and discuss each prospective student-athlete with the people who know them best – their high school coaches.
High School Football Media Day
Local media join head high school football coaches and more than 100 student-athletes for a preview of the upcoming high school football season in Tennessee.
Youth Football Jamboree
Through this annual event, fifty-two youth football teams in the middle Tennessee area are able to play where the pros play – on the field at Nissan Stadium.
Heads Up® Football and Player Safety Coach Clinics
In partnership with USA Football, the Titans host a pair of clinics at Saint Thomas Sports Park, teaching youth football coaches the comprehensive approach to a better, safer game.
NFL Foundation and USA Football Grant Program
The Tennessee Titans and USA Football, the sport’s national governing body and a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee, recently awarded grants for the purchase of new equipment, uniforms and other resources to 33 youth and scholastic football programs in the Titans market. Grants were awarded based on merit, need and the organization’s commitment to coaching education and best practices.
