ALL FAIRFIELD FOOTBALL COACHES ARE USA FOOTBALL HEADS UP CERTIFIED.
The Indians requires all coaches participating in on field activities to be USA Football Heads Up Certified. The Heads Up Football program is designed to enhance safety and effectiveness by focusing three areas: Tackling and Blocking, Health and Safety and Fundamentals of Coaching.
Starting as three pilot programs in 2012, Heads Up Football is now used by more than 7,000 youth and high school programs, setting the highest standards in the sport and giving the football community one voice when it comes to safety.
Commissioners know that safety comes first — both for the players on the field and their parents on the sidelines. The Fairfield Indians having a Heads Up Football program in place, with teams led by USA Football certified coaches, show that youth football is being taught the right way and parents should feel confident about the organization.
Heads Up Football is supported by leading educational, medical and football organizations.
