The Carolina Panthers will host area football moms for a series of free Heads Up Football Clinics at four different locations across the Carolinas in May and June. Clinics will be held at Bank of America Stadium, Greer (SC) High School, Appalachian State University and the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. Each clinic will be held in conjunction with USA Football, the national governing body of the sport and the Panthers' youth football development partner.
Each clinic will help provide mothers whose children are interested in playing tackle football with the latest information about player safety and other important information. Each event will include a $250 donation to the school or organization with the highest number of participating moms.
Carolina Panthers athletic training staff will discuss concussion recognition and a parent's role, while also covering hydration and prevention of heat-related illness. USA Football master trainers will educate moms on proper helmet and shoulder pad fitting while a Panthers alumni player will discuss football basics including rules and player positions.
Following classroom instruction, the clinic will move out to the field for hands-on instruction from the USA Football master trainers regarding the latest tackling.
Participants will receive an official Carolina Panthers Moms' Clinic event t-shirt. Snacks and water will be provided.
