Youth Football Safety Facts Parents – Did You Know??? 

*Organized youth football, like Pop Warner, has 12% fewer injuries per capita than does organized soccer in the same age range? 2 

*Organized youth football has 50% fewer injuries than does bicycle riding in the same age range? 2 

*Organized youth football has 74% fewer injuries than does skateboarding in the same age range? 2 

*Not only is the injury rate lower in Pop Warner football than these activities, but also there is “an absence of catastrophic head and neck injuries found at higher levels (of football)”? 1

Why is Pop Warner football so relatively safe? The answers are simple:

1.          Equipment            All league players wear first class protective gear, including helmets and shoulder pads.  Other sports like soccer, have frequent player contact incidents, but without the benefit of protective equipment.

2.          Age/Weight Restrictions          All league players are divided into specific age and weight divisions, which prevents dramatic differences between players who may collide during play. Moreover, the velocity at which younger players may collide is dramatically less than that which their older counterparts may experience.  The combination of less speed and less weight than at higher levels of play, tend to reduce collisions in youth football to a very small factor, in terms of injuries.
