WHY SAFE CONTACT?

We are all aware of how positive the game of football can be for our youth. But like any sport our kids play, it is incumbent on the organizers and coaches to teach young athletes how to play the game safely. Football by it's nature is a contact sport, however teaching sound fundamentals, along with progressions through drills will reduce concussions and injuries as a whole. All coaches, right down to the Atom level are required to be certified through Football Canada in Safe Contact.

WHAT IS SAFE CONTACT?

Safe Contact teaches safe tackling and blocking techniques along with safety education and awareness. Every football player needs to be able to perform the football fundamentals taught in Safe Contact, regardless of what position they play on the field. We instill these fundamentals to all of our athletes, and teach appropriate progressions in multiple tackling scenarios.
