Heads Up Football is a comprehensive approach developed by USA Football to increase player safety in football launched a pilot program in 2012.
Optimist Youth Football in Boise has been a USA Football certified league since 2013 season, and the Heads Up Football curriculum has been part of our annual coaching clinic material ever since. Before any volunteer coach can set foot on the field, they must undergo and pass a background screening, and take the Heads Up Football certification or re-certification course.
