Save Youth Football MA

We would like to defeat bill HD-2501 proposed to the MA State Legislature while informing MA State leadership of the efforts of local leagues, administrators, coaches, and families to improve the safety of youth football.

Why is this important?

We would like to defeat HD-2501 recently introduced to the MA State Legislature. Here is the link to AD-2501:

We would additionally like to inform the state legislature about the advancements youth football makes each year in the area's of safety, coaches training, new equipment, styles of play, and rule changes. These advancements are largely overlooked by the recent crusade against the sport of football.

We acknowledge the risks, but want the choice to play or not to play left up to individual families while considering the safety advances of their local and regional organizations.
