SAFETY FIRST

Our players safety is always a top priority for BBYFC board of directors and our coaches.  We want to be sure that you have all the information that you might need to answer questions that you might have or that someone else may ask you. BBYFC is committed to ensuring a positive youth football experience and advancing player safety.

Here are the important things to know;

1)      USA Football is the official youth development partner of the NFL and its 32 teams. It is the sport's national governing body and leads the game's development, inspires participation and ensures a better and safer experience for all youth, high school and other amateur players.

2)      All BBYFC head coaches and assistant coaches will complete and be certified in USA Football's accredited Level 1 Coach Certification Course, which includes Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concussion recognition and response protocols; proper helmet and shoulder pad fitting; and Heads Up Tackling techniques, which aim to take the head out of the line of contact. Learn more here https://usafootball.com/programs/heads-up-football/youth/

3)      All Coaches are CPR, First Aid and AED trained and certified.

4)      We hire Certified Athletic Trainers or EMT’s to attend all home games. 

5)      All BBYFC Coaches, board members and team parents pass an extensive background check that covers all 50 states.

6)      BBYFC follows manufacturer specifications for maintaining and retiring helmets. The helmets that our players wear is Riddell and Schutt. All of BBYFC helmets all are reconditioned each year for safety by Riddell.  Your player will never wear a helmet that is not reconditioned. 

7)      BBYFC has a zero tolerance for illegal tackles and headfirst hits. Coaches will discourage these types of hits at practice and during the game. Players may be benched during the game or removed from practice for leading with his head. Preventing bad hits starts with coaches. If a player thinks his coach will look the other way, then he might think injury-causing hits are acceptable.

8)      Coaches will watch for distracted players. Players need to be aware and focused. Players can get hurt if they are distracted by joking around s or if they not paying attention. Coaches will keep an eye on players to make sure they’re focused on the game or in practice during live drills.

9)      According to the Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, https://orthoinfo.aaos.org, Despite the perception that the majority of football participants will eventually sustain an injury, a recent study by USA Football found that more than 90 percent of the youth players did not suffer an injury that restricted participation.

The most commonly reported injures in youth football are contusions (bruises), sprains, strains and fractures. Contusions were the most common injuries (35%), followed by ligament sprains (15%). Fewer than 4% of the youth players sustained a concussion.

This holds true to the BBYFC track record.  During the last four years, we have had an average of 100 players a season which equates to 400 players. Bruising was the main injury our players suffered, but these are minor and is very common with a contact sport. Of the 400 BBYFC players, one suffered a broken leg, one suffered a broken arm and one sustained a mild concussion.

Concussion Policy

At BBYFC, our main priority is the safety of our children. As a precaution, our football and cheer coaches are all certified in concussion recognition. If a concussion is suspected, your child may be removed from the field. Coaches reserve the right to limit or deny playing/cheering time if a concussion is suspected. If a concussion would be diagnosed, a doctor's note must be submitted to your head coach prior to your child returning to practice. There are NO exceptions to this rule.
