Emphasizing Safety in Youth Football

Ohio State University’s study uncovers a significant parental dilemma: half are hesitant about children playing tackle football. This reflects deeper societal concerns and a crucial juncture for coaches. It’s an opportunity to address these fears by championing safety-focused strategies in youth football. By adopting and teaching safe tackling, coaches can alleviate these concerns, creating a safer environment that nurtures young football enthusiasts’ dreams.

"Atavus helped me improve my tackling and as a complete LB. They helped me become more aware of which side I was more dominant on and showed me my average yards after contact."

“The data that Atavus provides is critical and versatile. In addition to its primary function as a safety and teaching tool, I use it as an evaluation tool, and it helps tell an important part of a player's tackling ability and production. It encompasses so much!”

“[Atavus] allows our defensive staff... to analyze where we're at game in and game out to tailor our tackling drills to what our needs are each game. Then [they] take a snapshot over the season and help us in spring... tailor where we are going to attack our defensive drills for those kids that we've got coming back.”
