Heads Up Football is about the safety of your student-athletes. When you enroll and implement this unique program — already being used in thousands of districts across the country — you’ll know that every one of your football coaches is trained, tested and certified, ready to protect the health and safety of your student-athletes.
Athletic directors who have experienced Heads Up Football know that when you build safety into your football program, you build a better program.
Heads Up Football creates a curriculum for football safety, promoting higher standards and consistent performance. It also keeps the entire team focused on important, attainable safety goals. Hear what administrators and coaches who have implemented it have to say.
Developed with NFHS and available on NFHSLearn.com, high school coach certification is made up of four courses and teaches concussion recognition & response, heat preparedness & hydration, sudden cardiac arrest, proper equipment fitting, shoulder tackling and blocking.
Nominated by the athletic director, the Player Safety Coach supervises team implementation of all Heads Up Football components — for every coach and through the entire football season.
For high school programs and youth leagues, football safety is at the top of the agenda. As medical knowledge advances and parents become more focused on safety, it is essential to have a strong plan in place to promote concussion awareness, injury prevention and other issues.
Heads Up Football provides the training, education and awareness that the coaches you’re responsible for need along with the certification and backing of USA Football that parents respect.
