Haven't seen a topic about it, but has anyone seen this?





What does the IC say about it, especially those with kids. Keep in mind these kids are under 10.

    Looks like a typical practice/ game to me

    My son has been acting tackle football since age 6

    The coaches are tough and loud and say some crazy things but my son has never wanted to quit cause of something said to him

    In every league and even high school I have to sign a form saying I will behave and stay off the field at all practice and games ..... Parents can be ruthless lol

    Only time it was hard yo not run put there was when my son was tackled/flipped during a game in 7 th grade .... He ended up just having the wind knocked out of him but no lie seeing him laying on the field and not getting up was one of the scariest times of my life.

    I wouldn't allow my kid to play football at that young of an age, those kids go have their brains scrambled before they teens. That coach doing too much, all that make them bleed and not caring if his own player get up

    i'm all for youth sports & teaching em not to be a 🤬 ...i don't have any problems with the language & the yelling but i'm going to school to be an athletic trainer...i'm by no means an expert, but given what i know about head injuries & brain development..hell na.

    i'd have to see an episode for myself but if they got em in full pads & helmets every practice & not stressing proper technique then that 🤬 need to be shut down.

    From those clips they getting taught to lead with the helmet. If NFL players having their career shortened because of head trauma these kids go be in worse shape

    Of course safety is first

    They play these kids hard but not past the point of danger ... At least in our experiences

    The language is a lil overkill but even when I questioned it with my kid he never ever wanted me to approach the coaches.

    Ever since he started in middle school there have been at least 2 trainers at all practices and games in case someone is injured.

    I've always been a team mom too.... I'm pretty hands on with everything's kid does

    that's great.

    not everybody has this luxury tho..that's my fear of youth football because you have the gung-🤬 places like texas that have the support to get those kinda reinforcements. but then you have gung-🤬 leagues in bumfuck nowhere with no trainers & coaches who aren't knowledgeable about injuries & just chalk it up to getting the bell rung & be like oh you'll be aiite. kids running around with 4-5 concussions by the time they hit middle school & 🤬 .

    You are right .... I specifically picked the schools I wanted my son to attend so he can be at a top level.

    In youth leagues there is less professionalism and training.... It's usually dads who volunteer their time.

    I learned that when he started playing in middle school and it's even better in high school

    Our school bought these new special helmets to help prevent concussions and head injuries ... Also each player does a brain scan and testing to get a base on case of an injury.

    it shouldn't even be that serious. its just football. and the whole excuse that its ok because its in texas is 🤬 retarted and these kids and parents get taught that its ok to put them through this 🤬 and to put a game on such a pedestal then when it doesn't work out for them they walking around without a life like tim riggins and boobie miles

    Playing football younger than 7th/8th grade is a waste of time

    Its not worth the wear and tear on your body, and it all has to be retaught in high school anyway.
    As a coach, you'd rather a clean slate than un teaching bad habits.

    That's true. Football is all about raw athleticism. You either have it or you don't.
