The project is to decrease the number of youth sports related injuries among youth participating in the Fruitdale Youth Football while increasing youth sports safety and awareness. This will be implemented by the providing youth with the necessary safety equipment and gear, while also providing training to youth football coaches and providing parents with safety facts sheets. The training will consist of implementing the CDC (Center of Disease Control) HEADS UP for Youth Sports. The CDC provides training materials for coaches and customizable safety fact sheets to distribute to participating youth parents. As it relates to safety equipment and gear the CDC HEADS UP recommends 10 and out, which recommends football helmets meet NOCSAE (National Operating on Standards for Athletic Equipment) standards and should be replaced no later then 10 years from the date of manufacture. Many of the helmets in the Fruitdale Youth Football inventory will be at the 10 year mark and will need to be replaced. Unfortunately, many are not labeled to know if they meet any safety standards. In addition to helmets, the necessary shoulder pads, pants (thigh, knee, and hip) pads, chin straps and mouth pieces are needed for the safety of the Fruitdale Football Youth. It is through the volunteers in this community the youth football is offered. Fruitdale Youth Football has been and will be supported by the community for years to come. Fruitdale Youth Football is part of the Washington County Youth Football Association and is not limited to only the Fruitdale community.
