PLAYER SAFETY - METRO YOUTH FOOTBALL
MYFA goes to great lengths to ensure the safety of its players. Safety is the single greatest concern and gets a great deal of the board’s attention.
Coaches are thoroughly familiar with the equipment issued to each player and will check this equipment on regular basis. The equipment, itself is the finest we can buy... its not always new but each year it is reconditioned and re-certified by the manufacturers.
At each league game there are trainers on hand and specific rules are in place to ensure that an injured player receives the best attention as quickly as possible.
Football is a rough sport, that’s part of the fun, but it does not have to be dangerous.
MYFA is keenly aware of its safety responsibilities!
