Player Safety

Updated Monday April 10, 2017 by Ben Walker.

Ballard Junior Football and the Washington Junior Football League make player safety our top priority. Our commitment to USA Football and the Heads Up program requires concussion awareness education for coaches, parents and players - and requires training and certification for all coaches covering safety, equipment fitting, proper techniques and more. Research, rule changes, better equipment, increased awareness, improved medical care, and changes in teaching fundamental techniques are making the safe sport of youth football safer.
