As the NFL continues to make the game safer for their players, USA Football is making strides to do the same. USA Football is the leading governing body of Football in the U.S. from pee wee football through High school. The Derita Redskins are excited to be part of USA Football Heads Up Football program. With the establishment of the Heads Up Football program, coaches will put an emphasis on smarter and safer ways to play, one of the key parts to the program is that each player learns how to tackle properly and to never run with their head down. Our Coaches will be required to take this training course in order to participate in the 2014 season.
