LGC Fall 2018 - Safety Updates


Focus on Safety First!:

Youth football is no longer taught or played the same as when many parents played.   Youth football is evolving, making significant changes to minimize risk and
injuries – while focusing on increasing skill, technique and strength.    Pop Warner remains the ONLY national youth sports program that enforces a strict AGE & WEIGHT MATRIX reducing the risk and reality of injuries.

Our more recent changes include:

   * Mandatory certification of
All Coaches in Heads-up Football“

   * Reduced practice contact to 20% or less of practice time, increased focus on technique & drills

   * Eliminated kickoffs for all younger divisions of play

   * Strict revisions to Referee rules and training to eliminate improper technique 

And for our league & association:

   * An investment in NEW state of the art helmets and equipment for every child in our program  

   * Adoption of HitCheck -- a mobile baseline & sideline concussion diagnostic tool

   * Elevation of Safety Sergeant to our Board of Directors, responsible for overseeing and enforcing safety changes for our children.


National and Regional Pop Warner is also continually working with national & colligate football programs, athletic vendors to and advance safety gear to make sure your children have the safest Football experience possible.
