This season the Greensboro Parks & Recreation Department adopted USA Football’s “Heads Up Football” program in our effort to help create a better, safer game for our youth. This program focused on five core components:
1. Coaching Education
2. Concussion Awareness
3. Equipment Fitting
4. Heads Up Tackling
5. Heat & Hydration
All coaches received nearly eight (8) hours of training in addition to passing a national background screening prior to being allowed to coach.
