The Panthers host “football moms” for Heads Up Football Safety clinics each spring at multiple locations in the Carolinas. The clinics are held in conjunction with USA Football to educate parents regarding important Heads Up Football standards, including equipment fitting, proper tackling, concussion recognition/response and heat and hydration. Check out the Panthers Facebook calendar for dates and a link to register. Dates are normally posted in early May.
The Panthers and Academy Sports + Outdoors create a video package featuring the best youth football highlights from around the Carolinas. Highlights are played during each home game on PantherVision screens. In addition, featured youth players are provided a congratulatory letter from a Panther and tickets to attend the game showcasing their in-stadium highlight. To be considered, submit a team video highlight reel (not full game) via dropbox or similar to CommunityRelations@Panthers.NFL.com.
Youth Football Photo Day provides a free, fun and unique opportunity for area youth football teams to have their team photos taken professionally on the Bank of America Stadium field. The Panthers and Charlotte Eye Ear Nose and Throat provides each player and coach with a free digital photo album.
