In 2019, the CYFA incorporated a Player Safety Coordinator. This position was directly responsible for elements related to player safety. Creating a safe atmosphere for our youth to learn about and develop in a sport helps to allow the players the ability to work hard, knowing their safety is being looked after.
This position will continue into the 2020 season. A few of the focal points of the Player Safety Coordinator are:
- Heat Safety
- Concussion Protocol
- Severe Weather
- First Aid or Injury Case Management
CYFA is proud to announce that our league had zero (0) football related injuries related to concussions during the 2019 season. The use of the Heads Up Program and the implementation by our coaches has added value to the overall experience for the player.
