The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are pleased to announce the launch of a program aimed at educating football parents/guardians with information on player safety.
In the spring 2023, the Bombers will host a free clinic to provide helpful information to parents who have children either considering or currently playing tackle football.
This clinic includes sessions on proper equipment fitting, discussions on concussion recognition and a parent’s role their child’s football journey as well as providing a unique opportunity for attendees to learn from Bombers athletic training staff. Our trainers will educate parents on proper helmet and shoulder pad fitting while a Bombers alumni player will discuss football basics including rules and player positions. The clinic will then move outdoors where attendees will hit the field for hands-on instruction from training staff on the latest tackling techniques.
Our goal is to have parents walk away with a better understanding of the game and arm themselves with the knowledge they need to teach their child to play safely.
