The second half of the 2014 Atlanta Falcons Heads Up Tour, in partnership with Kids & Pros, will resume this Fall hitting the road again in Georgia. Four Atlanta Falcons Heads Up Clinics and Parent Informational Sessions will be held from Sept. – Nov. throughout the state of Georgia. Children ages 6 – 14 are encouraged to attend these free special one day clinics which will focus on teaching young athletes proper football tackling techniquse, as well as a variety of other football skills. These are non-contact clinics, so there is no equipment needed.
The clinics will incorporate safe tackling techniques from USA Football’s “Heads Up Football” program into the camps along with character-based lessons. The safe, non-contact football instruction teaches children the right way to play football and how to avoid injuries. Camp instructors will include current and former Atlanta Falcons players who will provide hands-on teaching of skill fundamentals, as well as position-specific training.
In addition, a free Parent Informational Session will be held in each location, led by former Atlanta Falcons Linebacker and USA Football Master Trainer Buddy Curry. The session will be held for parents of the clinic attendees to learn more about proper equipment fitting, new Heads Up tackling techniques, and concussion awareness.
The schedule will be announced shortly – please check back for more information soon!
