Tori Petry reports on the Lions' initiative to make the game safer for kids by educating moms with proper football techniques and preparation through USA Football's Heads Up Tackling Curriculum.
The Heads Up Football Clinic targets youth leagues — from coaches to players — and gets them involved with the safety of the game and using proper techniques.
Director of Youth Football Programs Chris Fritzsching leads the Heads Up Tackling clinic, which focuses on tackling in a better, safer manner, during the Lions' Training Camp Family Weekend.
Ford Field will be transformed into a giant recess, with approximately 400 students from local schools teaming up with the Lions alumni to highlight the NFL Play 60 partnership with Playworks Detroit and help combat childhood obesity in front of a sold out Ford Field crowd. Thank you to all of our following Halftime partners, including PlayWorks Detroit, XBOX, Movable and Blue Cross Blue Shield!
