Illinois Tackle Football Ban - UPDATE

Wildcat Families –

Following the Illinois ban on youth tackle football (until after 12yr old) House Bill 4341 sponsored by Carol Senate (D) Buffalo Grove has been temporarily removed before the vote because it did not have the votes to sustain a YES vote to move forward. This is a childish move on the part Ms. Senate as she tries to gather backing. It seems other State Legislators have a sensible view and are not willing to jump on board of this senseless attack on the sport of youth football.

This link to the full reading; Doctors from the Institute of Sports Medicine at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine have to say regarding CTE and the effects of “Tackling in Youth Football.”

Below is a brief excerpt as stated in the link:

•            “Most injuries sustained during participation in youth tackle football are minor, including injuries to the head and neck. Injuries are more likely to occur when improper and illegal technique, such as spear tackling, is used. As such, efforts should be made to improve the teaching of proper tackling technique and enforce existing rules prohibiting the use of improper technique.”

•            “There is no study to date showing the effect of delaying the age at which tackling is introduced to football on risk of injury. Delaying the age at which tackling is introduced to the game may decrease injury risk for the age levels at which tackling would be prohibited. However, once tackling is introduced, athletes who have no previous experience with tackling would be exposed to collisions for the first time at an age at which speeds are faster, collision forces are greater, and injury risk is higher. Lack of experience with tackling and being tackled may lead to a substantial increase in the number and severity of injuries once tackling is introduced.”

•            “The expansion of non-tackling leagues for young athletes who enjoy the game of football and want to be physically active, but do not want to be exposed to the collisions currently associated with the game should be considered by football leagues and organizations. However, it is important to note recent data showing that injury rates in youth flag football are the same as injury rates in youth tackle football based on recent studies.”

Thank you to the doctors and legislators that are supportive of the sport of football and see the multitude of positive facets that come from being part of an organization that adheres to proper teachings through certified coaches, support staff, player training, practice, and board direction/oversight.
