A Better Safer Game

Greater Cleveland Football Association participates in the Heads Up Football®, USA Football’s player safety program. A comprehensive method for teaching the sport’s fundamentals in a progressive, age-based approach, Heads Up Football® helps youth football leagues and clubs across the United States ensure a better, safer experience for our players, coaches, and parents.

Youth coaches are trained in the techniques of Heads Up Football®  before leading their teams every season. Coaches are required to complete USA Football’s accredited Level 1 Coaching Certification Course before the start of each season, which includes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concussion recognition and response protocols; proper helmet and shoulder pad fitting; heat and hydration safety, and Heads Up Tackling and Blocking techniques, which aim to take the head out of the line of contact and teach proper fundamentals.

Safest Game Around

Greater Cleveland Football Association is dedicated to providing the safest possible football experience for our players.
