A favorite team sport among kids and young adults, unfortunately football can be dangerous when played incorrectly and with improper equipment. But that’s all changing thanks to our partner, USA Football, and their national initiative to make the game better and safer for all.
As football’s national governing body, USA Football has established a new standard with their Heads Up Football program that educates commissioners, coaches, officials, players and parents on safer football practices. Their areas of focus include equipment fitting, concussion recognition & awareness, heat & hydration and Heads Up Tackling. USA Football members have access to a wide range of educational resources including age-based certification courses that teach proper techniques based on physical and mental capabilities. Simply put, their efforts have the changed the game.
“At BRAX Fundraising, many of us are former and current football coaches or parents of football players. We work with football fundraising coordinators from across the country every single day to help them raise the money they need to run their teams, associations and leagues. Our partnership with USA Football is just another way we’ve chosen to support these youth football groups in hopes of helping promote the protection of young players,” said BRAX Fundraising President, Todd Elgart.
In addition to equipment giveaways and other youth football promotions, BRAX and USA Football, in conjunction with several NFL teams, will be announcing a series of unique fundraising opportunities this fall so stay tuned…
