Welcome to From the Field – a guide to athletic field safety and care.
Throughout this series, we will focus on a sometimes overlooked but critical component affecting the safety and performance for athletes of all ages – the playing surface.
Rah-rah … nah.
Two Tampa, Fla., youth football teams were kicked out of their postseason tournaments after it was ruled that cheerleaders performing at a neighborhood barbecue violated the league’s practice policy.
The Brandon Bears, which compete in the Tri-County Youth Football and Cheerleading Conference 9-10 and 11-12 divisions, were told that they would not be allowed to play in the league’s Super Bowl after the video of cheerleaders was seen on Facebook by board members.
Both teams are 10-0, but their seasons are now over.
An Indianapolis-area youth football club will be presented with new football equipment today, courtesy of PNC Bank.
The Warren Township Football Clubwill be presented $5,000 worth of new equipment prior to today’s practice session. The donation is part of PNC Bank’s commitment to help build stronger communities. PNC Bank is a corporate partner of Indianapolis-based USA Football.
