Local coaches take part in 'Heads Up' football clinic

Posted: Updated:
HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Local youth football coaches flocked to Dorey Park in Henrico County Saturday afternoon to take part in a Heads Up clinic taught by two master instructors - one of whom was Hermitage head football coach Patrick Kane.

Metro Youth Football helped put on the event that was attended by 64 coaches.  Upon completion of the course, those coaches became "player safety coaches" who are expected to now return to their respective programs to teach the techniques to other coaches.

"Heads Up" is a program put on by USA Football designed to teach the basics of the sport in order to limit head injuries in children.
