Kids need to have good helmets and be checked out for traumatic brain injury and other brain injuries and be given education on drug and alcohol abuse, coping skills, anger management, sensitivity training, healthy relationships since so many footballers end up with issues.
This is a great way to help the communites who can't afford proper gear and/or training!
Wonderful program for a good cause
Smarter football means teaching proper hitting method and making players aware that when they are hit hard they should stay down and let trainer check them out to make sure no concussions are happening
