PYF is proactively adapting to the new techniques and initiatives being incorporated in the sport on all competitive levels. These include:

  • Safety components and methods certified by USA Football’s Heads Up program (
  • Limited periods of full-contact activity in practice during the regular season
  • New blocking and tackling mechanics, including the “Hawk” style of tackling, designed to reduce helmet contact - same method implemented by Pelham’s Varsity program
  • All tackle football players are issued state of the art helmets – the Schutt Vengeance DCT
  • All players are required to wear the Guardian Cap soft shell helmet cover in practices and games, engineered to reduce impact by up to 33%
  • Coaches educated in concussion recognition and response
  • Practices are regularly attended by an EMT and a PYF-acquired AED is present at all practices
