SAFETY

This is our number one most important goal right before the number two goal of your player having a fun time.  We take many steps to ensure your child’s safety when participating in football or cheerleading.

We offer:

**** Safety Certified Coaches:  All coaches have been certified by American Youth Football and Tucson Youth Football by completing the following:

1)      Coaching clinic – which goes over rules / heat & hydration / concussions/ AED / fundamentals

2)      CPR / First Aid certified

3)      Concussion testing

4)      Fingerprinted & background checked

5)      Tackle Sure / USA Heads up Football training

6)      Equipment – proper fitting

  • Equipment includes Certified Helmets and shoulder pads – All Helmets are certified every two years to ensure they meet all the safety guidelines.
  • Divisions – all players within two or three years of each other and most players will be of the same grade level.
  • Weather Plan – each practice and games the weather surrounding our fields will be monitored and if at any time it becomes a safety hazard for our kids we have a plan to get everyone off the fields quickly and in a orderly fashion.
  • Insurance – We do have full coverage so if your child does get injured they will be covered.  We hope this will help in knowing that hopefully your player won’t get hurt but if they do you don’t have to worry about not getting them the help they need.

All sports have an inherent danger with your child participating.  We will do everything to limit the chances of an injury occurring but please be aware that is a possibility.  Youth football studies have been done by many organizations to show that Youth football is as safe as and in fact safer than most youth sports today.  See some of the links below:
