All GYF Coaches are Heads Up Football Certified!

Updated Thursday March 31, 2016 by Guilford Youth Football and Cheerleading.

Guilford Youth Football is pleased to partner with USA Football to teach Heads Up Tackling™ and HEADS UP BLOCKING™

USA Football’s Heads Up Tackling™ is a step-by-step protocol to teach the core principles of the skill and sets a new standard in player safety. The program utilizes five fundamentals through a series of drills to reinforce proper tackling mechanics and teach players how to properly tackle with a focus on reducing helmet contacts.

One of football’s most basic skills, USA Football’s Heads Up Blocking helps coaches teach players to properly engage with a defender, drive with the legs and maintain the correct body position for effective and safer play.
