On Saturday, July 8th, the Cleveland Browns will be hosting a Player Safety Coach Clinic with USA Football from 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM at FirstEnergy Stadium. The audience will be high school coaches, and those who register will be trained by Chuck Kyle of St. Ignatius.
If you recall, last May, the Browns hired Kyle as a youth football advisor, with the mission of “providing opportunities for young athletes to play football and enhance safety for all participants and coaches.” Per Browns.com, here is what participants in this year’s clinic can expect:
The clinic is designed to prepare high school football coaches for implementing and overseeing the primary components of Heads Up Football in their respective organizations. These components include coach certification, proper equipment fitting, concussion recognition and response, heat and hydration preparedness, as well as Heads UP Blocking and Shoulder Tackling techniques. The program ensures that coaches are informed of the latest information regarding safety techniques and practices that will help get the most out of the players while enhancing their safety and experience within the sport.
High school coaches interested in attending should register here. The deadline to register via that link is Friday, July 7th, at 9:00 AM. Coaches can still attend if they do not register, but will have to go through the hassle of signing more paperwork on-site.
