Player Safety and Medical Information

Updated Tuesday April 12, 2016 by Hamilton Football Association.

Player safety and well being is the number one priority for the HFA. Equipment maintenance guidelines and schedules are strictly adhered to. Directors, coaches and program organizers are constantly reviewing their activities to ensure that the safety of all participants is being met.  

The following guidelines were created to help you mitigate these situations and to make every effort to injurty prevention and upholding high safety standards. 

Your coaches will regularly inspect fields, adhere to the City's field safety recommendations and ensure that equipment used for practice and competition is deemed safe. As the nation's FIRST Safe Contact Trained Organization, we will continue to lead minor football and teach the safest blocking and tackling techniques to help players avoid injury and we will be taking frequent water breaks.

Parents please ensure that you are informed and

  1. Read the Safety Policy documents thoroughly.  
  2.  Ensure your player has a filled water bottle.
  3. Keep equipment clean and in good working order.  Refrain from throwing or droping safety helmets.  Educate yourself to knowing how the player should properly wear it every time they take the field.
