At the Lions Headquarters and Training Facility in Allen Park for a Football Safety Clinic for Moms. This free, interactive and educational forum is designed to educate moms about how the game of football is being played safer and better than ever before. This event will provide moms the opportunity to hear from leading medical & nutrition experts, get on the practice field to learn USA Football’s Heads Up Tackling technique, and engage with other moms on issues of mutual interest regarding youth sports safety.

The event will consist of important discussion on the following areas of player health and safety:

Heat & Hydration 
Understanding the dangers of heat, the different types of heat illnesses, and how to acclimatize one’s body prior to physical activity.

Nutrition
