Youth football coaches lead the way in player safety | ETHICS IN SPORTS: BAKER, J COACHING FOOTBALL (DEFENSE) | Scoop.it

Although football dominates the country’s airwaves like no other game, some people view it as an endangered sport.

 

Mounting scrutiny about the lasting impact of concussions has generated controversy for the National Football League, calling into question the long-term stability of a game that could risk the health of anyone playing it.

 

Fairfax County has been near the forefront of a recent movement to preserve and enhance football by improving instruction for youths. Last year, local coaches fell in step with Heads Up Football, a national youth program aimed at improving tackling techniques to foster a safer game.

John Baker's insight:

The most important thing to do as a coach is know your players that you are teaching. Understanding their beliefs and overall background will help build a mutual trust, which will help improve performance. Michael Sam's story is great because he will be a future defender in the NFL, and whoever decides to draft him will have to get the entire team on  one understanding. That is that respect for all players is key!

John Baker's insight:

This is a prime example of what not to do as a defender in football. Playing the game safely is the best way to coach players. Players at all levels most understand the dangers of playing without the proper  equipment. Although this player did not get hurt during this play he put himself at great risk, and he also set a bad example for young players coming up in the game.
