Fairfield Pop Warner Hosts NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell
Fairfield, CT -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell visited Fairfield Giants Pop Warner practice on August 28th 2013 to congratulate them on successful implementation of USA Football's Heads-Up Football initiative.
Commissioner Goodell spent over 2 hours working with players during tackling drills and talking with players, parents and coaches on this program to make tackle football a safer game.
His program includes the NFL level where he has focused on taking dangerous techniques and hits out of the game. "We're trying to do it right at the NFL level" Goodell said in his Q&A with parents.
USA Football and Pop Warner have recently announced a partnership in this initiative and the Fairfield Giants are at the forefront for SCPW. This program includes concussion recognition, better equipment fitting and improved tackling techniques. The program re-teaches coaches so they can effectively train their players to tackle with safer technique.
