CONCUSSION AWARENESS

Endowed by the NFL and NFLPA in 2002, USA Football is the official youth football development partner of the NFL, its 32 teams and the NFL Players Association and manages U.S. national teams for international competition. USA Football is an independent 501-c-3 non-profit organization that leads the development of the game through educational programs and innovative resources.

The Issue

Youth football leagues must address player safety and advance it in new and better ways. Dedicated volunteers who coach it can do so better and safer. They must learn safer tackling techniques endorsed by medical and football experts. They must know concussion awareness protocols from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Such standards for safer play are needed in youth football.

The Solution

USA Football created Heads Up Football to help youth leagues attain these standards, which are among the highest in any sport. This new membership program, endorsed by renowned medical experts and nationally respected football coaches, provides a comprehensive solution for a better, safer game. Heads Up Football is powered by innovation, educating coaches, parents and players in both direct and technologically advanced ways. Our children’s safety demands it.
