Ohio State and NFL Team Up to Help Football Moms

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Ohio State Head Coach Urban Meyer are teaming up to host a football safety clinic on August 1st from 10 am until 1pm. The camp will host about 600 mothers of youth football players. This free event will take place at the Buckeyes’ Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

The football moms will receive instructions from experts in health and football. The NFL’s campaign for “Heads Up” tackling and proper form will be stressed at the clinic. “We know how a parent feels when entrusting a child to a coach. All parents want to make sure that their child’s coach puts safety first and is educated in the most modern techniques designed to promote safe play and teach the skills needed to have fun,” wrote Goodell. On field training from Ohio state Coaches and former players will also be available.

Other football related issues like concussion awareness, heat and hydration and proper equipment fitting will be focused on at the camp as well. In an invitation to the OSU-NFL Moms Football Safety Clinic sent to female NFL fans in Ohio, Commissioner Goodell says: ”We want to give you a chance to see firsthand what we are doing to make youth football safer and better.”

Participation is limited and will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis.
