Parents & Players
Check out this great video of Coaches across all levels including the NFL, Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12 talk about why they believe in football. We believe in it as well!
As you have seen, football is more than just a game played on a field. It’s an opportunity for so much more! It’s our job as coaches of your children to teach them the skills of the game, to be a positive influence in their lives, to lead by example and to provide a safe environment for young athletes. One of the teaching tools we are using again this season to help with your child’s safety is the USA Football Heads Up Tackling protocol.
USA Football’s Heads Up Tackling℠ is a step-by-step protocol to teach the core principles of the skill and sets a new standard in player safety. The program utilizes five fundamentals through a series of drills to reinforce proper tackling mechanics and teach players how to properly tackle with a focus on reducing helmet contacts. Since we are a parent driven organization, we have the opportunity to extend the resources we are using onto the parents of our football team and league. Together we can make this game we all love safe and fun for our children. In the coming weeks we will be posting many more safety tips and coaching tools help you, help us get ready for this season.
