The Philadelphia Eagles support kids' involvement in all youth sports, especially youth football. We encourage kids throughout the area to get off the couch and Play Football! Here are a few programs that the Eagles support...
USA Football is asking the NFL to help make coaches and players more aware of player safety and concussion awareness. Contact is a part of every sport and concussions can happen anytime players make contact, collide, or fall to the playing surface. This season, USA Football is asking coaches to put pride aside for player safety because players that "toughen out" and continue to play with concussion symptoms risk serious injury. If you suspect a player is concussed ,remove them from action, no matter how it affects your pride or game plan.
Philadelphia Eagles Youth Football Camps offer a comprehensive, non-contact football curriculum. Kids learn to throw, catch, defend, form block, form tackle and explode out of a stance with proper technique and improved speed. Equally important is our emphasis on teamwork, sportsmanship, self-esteem, good health and fitness.
