Please note Warriors has to replace our current football jerseys due to the unavailability of the existing jerseys from manufacturers. For 2015 Warriors will have new game jerseys for all teams at age 11 and below. The new uniform will be Red Dazzle pants with a new Black Game jersey and Black Dazzle pants with a new Red Game jersey. Team Coaches will have the option to use the Red pants with the Black jerseys only if they wish. The standard Black game pants can be used with both new jerseys.

Last year USA Football completed a two year study that determined actual facts surrounding injuries associated with youth football. This year USA Football continued their study by evaluating the impact of the USA Football's Heads Up Football program on youth football injuries. The results are staggering - the bottom line is that this study found a 76% reduction in injuries for leagues participating in the USA Football program vs. leagues that do not take part in the program. This year's study by the Datalys Center involved over 2,100 players, ages 5-15, across 100 teams and 10 youth organizations spanning four states. The number of players from leagues committed to using USA Football's Heads Up Program were over 1,400 players while those players from leagues not using the Heads Up Program were just over 700 players. The two-to-one difference in players using the Heads Up Program vs. players from leagues that did not use the Program was used to balance its youth football safety surveillance data for the 2012-13 study.
Some additional important results from the study are as follows:
Players in Heads Up Football leagues were 57% less likelyto sustain a time-loss injury.
Compared to non-Heads Up Football leagues, Players in Heads Up Football leagues had a 34% reduction in concussions in practices and a 29 % reduction in concussions in games.
Through the now three years of research (2012-2014) encompassing more than 6,000 players ranging in age 5-15, 2.8 percent of all players sustained a concussion.
More than 90% of youth players in Heads Up Football leagues did not sustain an injuryin game sor practices during the 2014 season.
Bruises were the most common injuriesreported (27% of all injuries), followed by ligament sprains (22% of all injuries).
During a 12 week season with three practices per week, a youth player in a Heads Up Football-particpating league would receive 90 fewer head impactsthan a player in a non-Heads Up Football league.
As many of you know your Warriors and the AYL are totally committed to using the USA Football's Heads Up Football program. In 2014 97% of the Warriors Coaches were USA Football Tackle certified while 2015 will see 100% of all Warriors Football Coaches certified or they will not coach in our program!
