The Carolina Panthers hosted their first Heads Up Football Moms Clinic in partnership with USA Football recently. Nearly 100 local moms attended the clinic at Bank of America Stadium.
Panthers head coach Ron Rivera welcomed the moms, who spent an interactive evening learning about the importance of the Heads Up Football initiative.
Carolina Panthers head athletic trainer Ryan Vermillion led an information session on how to properly manage heat and hydration for youth players. USA Football master trainer EZ Smith demonstrated proper fitting for helmet and shoulder pads.
“We hope all of these moms can now go back to their community and advocate to make sure their coaches are Heads Up Football certified,” said Smith.
