Heads Up USA Football

In an effort to enhance player safety and establish a better game experience for youth, high school and amateur-level programs, USA Football will host a Heads Up Football Player Safety Coaches clinic on Saturday, June 22, at Virginia Mason Athletic Center.

More than 70 Player Safety Coaches representing leagues throughout the state will converge on the Seahawks’ training facility in Renton, Wash. to receive instruction from Heads Up Football master trainer Tom Bainter – the head football coach at Bothell High School. Bainter will offer tips on Heads Up tackling technique, concussion recognition and response, and proper use and fitting of football equipment.

The Player Safety Coaches in attendance will then pass on what they learn to their respective league coaches, players, and parents, and will monitor practices and games to ensure standards are met throughout the season.
