​SAFETY IS NUMBER ONE! THE NEW STANDARDS IN PELHAM YOUTH FOOTBALL


PYF is proactively adopting the new techniques and initiatives being incorporated in the sport on all competitive levels. These include:
•Safety components and methods certified by USA Football
•Limited periods of full-contact activity in practice 
•New blocking and tackling mechanics, including the “Hawk” style of shoulder tackling, designed to reduce helmet contact (the same method implemented by Pelham High School's Varsity Football program)
•All tackle football players are issued state of the art helmets – the Schutt Vengeance DCT
•All players are required to wear the Guardian Capsoft shell helmet cover in practices and games, engineered to reduce impact by up to 33%
•Coaches educated in concussion recognition and response
•PYF-acquired AED is present at all practices
