USA Football Launches "Heads Up Football"

Heads Up Football is USA Football's comprehensive approach for a better, safer game with an emphasis on player safety.

Heads Up Football was created by USA Football with support from the NFL.

The program focuses on four key areas - 1) concussion awareness, 2) proper equipment fitting, 3) coaching education and 4) Heads Up Tackling, which aims to take the head out of the line of contact. All of this combines to help make you a more confident, efficient tackler while helping to improve safety.
