On Saturday, June 22, USA Football and the Atlanta Falcons conducted a Heads Up Football Player Safety Coach clinic for a large number of North Georgia Youth Coaches representing leagues throughout the state of Georgia at Rock Creek Sports Complex in Dawsonville, GA.

Former Falcons linebacker and USA Football Master Trainer, Buddy Curry, led the workshop that focused on instruction in the areas of equipment fitting, concussion awareness and proper tackling. These Player Safety Coaches who were given instruction by Curry will teach these Heads Up Football principles to their own youth league coaches, players and parents.

So far in 2013, the Falcons have also hosted five Parent Informational Sessions throughout the state and currently have several more scheduled this summer.
