The Spring-Ford Youth Rams Football and Cheer in cooperation with USA Football are striving to make the game of football a safer game. With the addition of a dedicated Player Safety Coach to the program, all coaches are required to attend training and practice drills associated with safer tackling procedures.
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 contact. – See more at: USA FOOTBALL
