Coaches - Need an Orange Badge?

ATTENTION ALL FOOTBALL COMMISSIONERS AND COACHES:

 

Last Chance:  The PGCBGC Player Safety Coach (Terry Cotten) has agreed to provide one last Heads Up Player Safety Coach clinic for all coaches who still need to obtain an “Orange Badge”.  The clinic will be held Sunday, 28 September at noon at Watkins Regional football field.   An “Orange Badge” representative is required for each team on the sidelines for player safety.  All coaches are require to be certified at Level 1 and Level 2 of the USA Football program to receive a badge to coach and must attend the Player Safety Coach clinic to receive an “Orange Badge”.  If an “Orange Badge” representative is not available on the sidelines for each team, then that team will forfeit the game.  This is absolutely the last chance to obtain an “Orange Badge” for this year! 

 

Please contact Terry Cotton at tcotten@smcmail.com or Calvin Massie at Calvin.Massie@pgparks.com by COB Friday, 26 September 2014  to let us know you are coming.

Level 2 Tackle Certification

All Commissioners, Coaches and Team Assistants:

It has been noted that some of you have been having a problem taking the level 2 tackle football certification.  According to USA Football, if you have taken the Flag Certification last year, then you can move on to the 6U Certification without a problem.  But, if you are taking the 6U Certification for the first time, then you should take the 8U Certification instead of the 6U Certification.  If this doesn’t resolve your problem, please contact the Executive Director, (301) 446-6800  for assistance.

USA Football Level One and Level Two Certification

 All Presidents, Athletics Directors, Membership Personnel, Football coaches and Assistants: 

 

Last Chance!

In a final effort to get as many untrained Heads Up Football® Player Safety Coaches trained, USA Football is hosting two Heads Up Football® PSC Training Clinics in the Baltimore-Washington, D.C.-Northern Virginia area next Saturday and Sunday. Any untrained PSC coaches from Prince George’s County Boys & Girls Clubs must attend one of the PSC training:

Baltimore PSC training details (Aug. 23) http://www2.usafootball.com/schools/details/3286

Alexandria PSC training details (Aug. 24): http://www2.usafootball.com/schools/details/3315

Beginning with the 2014 Football Season, head coaches and assistant coaches of ALL COUNTY TEAMS must complete the USA Football Level One and Level Two Certification. Coaches and team moms must also have a background check before coaching or going on the field. USA Football Certifications must be completed  prior to the start of the regular season (Sept 6).

 

 

In addition, one coach on each team must have received USA Football’s Heads Up training and certification. Coaches completing USA Football Level One and Two training plus Heads Up training will receive an orange badge. An Orange Badge MUST be present on the sidelines for each team in order to play. If no coaches with an orange badge are present on the sidelines, the team will forfeit the game.

 

The Prince George’s County Boys & Girls Club believes in safety and has gone through great measures to ensure our football program and its participants are operating in a safe manner and environment.  To this end, we have embraced USA Footballs’ Heads UP program and instituted new requirements and procedures to ensure our coaches are teaching proper safety techniques to reduce injuries.  This year, all unit clubs MUST have a Player Safety Coach designated and trained and EACH team must have a trained coach on the field at all times. All coaches must have taken and passed the USA Football Level One Certification course as well as the Level Two Player Development course appropriate for the age group they are coaching.

 

A handful of your programs haven’t signed up for Heads Up Football® and/or haven’t nominated their PSC.

 

Association/clubs that need to sign up for Heads Up Football® & nominate their PSC (STEP 1 below):

·         Allentown

·         Bowie

·         Camp Spring

·         Capitol Heights/Seat Pleasant

·         Clinton

·         Forestville

·         Fort Washington

·         Glenarden

·         Greenbelt

·         Hyattsville

·         Kentland

·         Marlboro

·         New Carrolton

·         Port Towns

·         Silver Hill

·         South Bowie

 

The above programs are advised to follow the instructions below to sign up for Heads Up Football® and nominate their PSC. When signing up – they will nominate their PSC – please ensure if  it’s the PSC that attended a training – an accurate email for the PSC is needed. This is one of the reasons they may not be showing up on our Dashboard – for example, a PSC may have attended, yet is not showing up on our Dashboard, because that organization hasn’t signed up for Heads Up Football®.

 

During the clubs’ registration for Heads Up Football® once the commissioner begins typing in the name of his club, they should see their respective name pop up – have them select it (ensure it is the right one – there are a lot of similar named youth programs, i.e. Allentown.

 

Next steps for club commissioners:

 

  1. Register club online for Heads Up Football–this includes naming the club’s Player Safety Coach (PSC): http://usafootball.com/headsup

 

  1. Direct untrained Player Safety Coaches to register for a Player Safety Coach Clinic: http://www2.usafootball.com/schools/browse/pscclinics

 

  1. Share the Coach Membership code you received upon Heads Up Football® registration with head & assistant coaches. (All head & assistant coaches will complete  Level 1 tackle certification or recertification quiz and Level Two, development training—the recertification is for your coaches that already took the longer course last year.

Mouthguard Safety
Commissioners, Coaches & Parents
When worn during contact sports, mouthguards prevent and reduce injuries to the teeth, lips and gums.

It is important for the player to have a mouthguard that fits well in order to work it's best.  The better mouthguards absorb shock which can also help protect against jaw and brain injuries.



      

TWG - The WrightGUARD was created by Dr. Michael Wright, a Prosthodontist based in Maryland, to be the last line of defense in reducing the occurrence of severe concussions and devastating mouth injuries in contact sports such as football.
