Titans, USA Football to host Free Player Safety Clinic July 12

Posted May 22, 2014

The Titans and USA Football are hosting a free Heads Up Football Player Safety Coaches Clinic at Saint Thomas Sports Park on July 12.

USA Football, football’s national governing body, will conduct a free Heads Up Football Player Safety Coaches Clinic at Saint Thomas Sports Park on Saturday July 12.

A master trainer from USA Football will instruct player safety coaches who represent leagues, teams and high schools throughout the state. This group will then teach Heads Up Football to their youth league and high school coaches, players and parents.

The program is extremely important to the Tennessee Titans’ beliefs on the need of concussion awareness and prevention and expanding education for players’ health and safety.

In addition, in April of 2013, the state of Tennessee became the 44th state to a pass sports concussion law designed to reduce youth sports concussions and increase awareness of traumatic brain injuries.

Heads Up Football is USA Football’s national comprehensive initiative to help make the sport of football better and safer. The initiative’s approach encompasses:

  • USA Football’s accredited Level 1 Coach Certification Course
  • Heads Up Tackling techniques
  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concussion recognition and response protocols
  • Heat and hydration education
  • Instruction on proper helmet and shoulder pad fitting

After completing the workshop, player safety coaches will oversee their league, team or school’s implementation of the highest national coaching standards for youth football. Player Safety Coaches also will monitor practices and games throughout the season. To learn more about Heads Up Football, please visit http://usafootball.com/headsup/.

If your league, team or school has already signed up for the Heads Up Football initiative, please click here to register for the Player Safety Coaches Clinic.
