Heads Up Football

Posted by Dave Rea at Jul 7, 2015 5:00PM PDT ( 0 Comments )
Buckeye Youth Football Association renewed their partnership with USA Football and the NFL in their 'Heads Up' Program begining with the 2015 Season. The Heads Up program is four pronged in its delivery of these major items Education & Certification, Concussion Awareness, Equipment Fitting and Heads Up Tackling. You can go on the USA Football site and get familiar with the 'Heads Up' program by clicking on the link.

We require that all of our Football & Cheer Coaches have Concussion Awarness training as is now mandated by the State of Ohio. This certification is good for 3 years and we must provide proof of certification to Lake Erie Youth Football League prior to the season. All of our Football Coaches must become members of USA Football and complete the basic training course for Flag or Tackle Football and continue to renew that membership and update the Flag or Tackle certificate as required by USA Football each year they coach for BYFA. Beginning with the 2015 Season USA Football will be giving organizations a $500.00 Cash Grant to any organization that has 100% of their coaches as members and certified. All Coaches must be background checked a practice we have been doing since the 2010 season through the National Center of Safety Initiatives who are another partner of USA Football. Background checks are also mandatory for our Team Moms. We also are making sure that the coaches receive instruction on how to properly fit helmets and shoulder pads. You can click on the link for a video of helmet fitting, shoulder pad fitting and how helmets are reconditioned at Riddell here.
