IF WE KNOW ANYTHING, IT’S FOOTBALL.

Founded in 1975, the Big New England Football Clinic is the premiere football coaches’ clinic for coaches at all levels throughout New England and beyond. Housed at the beautiful and luxurious Newport Marriott Hotel, the clinic delivers over 60 hours of straight football talk with some of the biggest and best names in the game.

Congratulations to our Youth Coach of Distinction winners!

The Youth Coach of Distinction award is presented annually at the BNEFC to one youth football coach from each of the six New England states. The award is given to a coach with a love of the game of football and who is dedicated to the betterment of the game and the development of its young athletes. The recipient is inspiring and encouraging, as well as patient and compassionate. He/she is a role model who teaches the game with dignity and sportsmanship, and who ultimately leaves an indelible mark on the lives of the players he/she mentors.

WHAT COACHES ARE SAYING

“I have been attending the BNEFC for almost 40 years. There is something about this clinic that makes it different than any other clinic I have attended. It’s highly organized, welcoming, and promotes collaboration and professional development. From the youth coach to the NFL coach, every attendee feels valued at the BNEFC.”

Mark Whipple, University of Pittsburgh

“Keith and Terry have expertly continued Chet O’Neill’s tradition of holding a no-frills, hands-on clinic that features an outstanding network of professional, college and high school coaches.  Always well-attended, Big New England is better than any other clinics I’ve attended because of the high quality of the clinicians; the sessions always get right to business and are informative.  I’ve been coaching for over 40 years, and I always come away with some nuggets that I can use in my program. I highly recommend the Big New England Clinic as the best three-day bang-for-your-buck football clinic I’ve ever attended.”

John Mackay, St. George's School

“I have been fortunate enough to attend the Big New England Football Clinic multiple times over the years and always look forward to it. It is an outstanding weekend to learn from some of the best high school, college, and NFL coaches in the country.  There is a tremendous amount of information on all aspects of football that is presented and it is a great opportunity for coaches at all levels to improve and make themselves better.”

Joel Lamb, Harvard University
