USA Football is the national governing body for amateur American football in the United States. It is an independent non-profit based in Indianapolis, Indiana. USA Football hosts more than 100 training events annually and offers education programs for coaches and game officials, as well as skill development for young players and resources for youth league administrators. The organization awards more than $1,000,000 in equipment grants to youth leagues and high schools each year based on merit and need along with additional resources. USA Football also offers up to $500,000 in subsidies for volunteer youth coach background checks.
USA Football was endowed by the National Football League and the National Football League Players Association in 2002.
In May 2017, the International Federation of American Football stripped its recognition of USA Football, citing disputes over anti-doping enforcement. The IFAF instead recognized the United States Federation of American Football as the USA's governing body, and the USFAF organized a team to participate in the 2017 World Games, in which it won a bronze medal.
A rival body also calling itself the International Federation of American Football continued to recognize USA Football and organized the 2017 Women's World Championships, which the USA won.
In March 2018, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) determined that the rival IFAF organization was the proper governing entity and voided all decisions of the other IFAF entity, including their decision to strip USA Football of its recognition. USA Football is currently the internationally recognized governing body for American football in the United States.
