Rainier Beach Sports Program is an all-volunteer non-profit organization that has been in existence for over 38 years. Rainier Beach Sports Program serves approximately 150- 200 boys and girls from ages six to thirteen. A large number of our participants are low income and “Youth at Risk.” Our program concentrates on making efforts to reach and guide the youth in the community to prevent academic failure, substance abuse and gang involvement. Our franchise’s goal is for boys and girls to learn about Responsibility, Discipline, Teamwork, Friendship, Respect, Leadership, Pride and having Fun along the way through physical fitness.
We are an organization dedicated to provide hope and opportunities for the youth of the Rainier Beach Community to participate in the exciting activities of football and cheerleading. We emphasize on developing fundamental skills, promoting good sportsmanship and gaining confidence and self-esteem. Our organization thrives on supporting academic achievement and providing tutor/study sessions for all participants.
Rainier Beach Sports Program focuses on safety first. Teaching our teams most essential skills and the proper tackling strategies. It is crucial to teach these kids the best ways to tackle appropriately so that they can avoid being wounded or wounding another person. Rainier Beach Sports Program is committed to ensuring a positive youth football experience and advancing player safety by providing Club-wide coaching education and teaching resources that benefit players, parents and coaches through USA Football’s Heads Up Football program. USA Football is the official youth development partner of the NFL and its 32 teams.
All coaches will be trained in Heads Up Football techniques before coaching on the field. Rainier Beach Sports Program’s head coaches and assistant coaches will complete USA Football’s accredited Level 1 Coach Certification Course, which includes Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concussion recognition and response protocols; proper helmet and shoulder pad fitting; heat and hydration information from the Korey Stringer Institute; and Heads Up Tackling techniques, which aim to take the head out of the line of contact.
Through Heads Up Football, a Player Safety Coach will be trained by USA Football to implement, evaluate and monitor Heads Up Football player safety protocols within the organization. Player Safety Coaches work with league commissioners, coaches, parents and players throughout the season to provide on-site clinics and mentoring to ensure that coaching and player safety best practices are used. Heads Up Football promotes a safer, better game, and Rainier Beach Sports Program is proud to be leading the state of Washington in youth football community through Heads Up Football, helping to set the highest standards of player safety and coaching education in any youth sport.
