Football Season Is Here!

September 6, 2013

Football Season Is Here!

Football is back, and we’re hoping for a healthy, safe season.

Recently, leaders of the National Football League (NFL) and the Pop Warner youth league announced a partnership between the NFL and Pop Warner to endorse USA Football’s Heads Up Football program. We are told that Pop Warner coaches will be trained to teach the latest techniques and make the game safer for hundreds of thousands of young football players. The Heads Up Football program is supposed to make the game safer by teaching players to keep their heads up and out of the line of contact.

Concussion awareness has been in the sports news lately, primarily because of the recent historic settlement between the NFL and many of its injured players. With this in mind, we note that the Pop Warner youth league has introduced a dedicated concussion rule, which is supposed to limit contact in practice and banning head-to-head contact.

Have fun, but stay healthy and safe. That’s what we’re rooting for this Football Season.
