Someone is Going to hit my kid and it's OK!

Really! – It’s OK.“I can’t believe they could do that to my child,”

It’s a popular refrain from some parents who call us up with concerns over tackling and hitting in a normal game. It’s true, to someone who has raised their kids to not hit others, the actions at a minor football game can come as quite a shock. And it can be worse if they watch a practice where certain “pit” drills are designed to accentuate contact, but it’s OK.

The equipment that the players wear, is probably the best protective equipment in sports. We put a lot of time and effort not only into maintaining this equipment, but also making sure it fits your child for both comfort and safety. In addition to this, a great deal of time is spent by the coaches in practice on not only how to give, but also receive a hit properly and safely.

Football does have it’s fair share of injuries, but not any more than most other popular sports such as hockey, soccer, skiing, basketball, etc. We wouldn’t offer this sport to kids if it was a true hazard to their health and we have over 100 years of history to back that up.
