Smarter Football for Kids Football Equipment Upgrade Grants Offered by Riddell


Sports





MBE partnered with Riddell for this post

Amateur football, whether this beloved made-in-the USA sport is played at the grade school, high school or collegiate level, isn't just about what goes on when the team is on the field. It's also about preparing our youth and emerging young adults for the game we call life. 






That's why, as a mom of four active kids (triplets plus one born within a year) who have all participated in a wide array of team and individual sports, I'm thrilled to shed a spotlight on Smarter Football and all the ways football played right, on and off the field, can enhance life within each unique family as well elevate the quality of learning and living for our modern day athletic sons and daughters, nephews and nieces, grandchildren, and other loved ones.






Read on to learn all about the benefits of football for today's students as well as the $100,000 football equipment grant program just announced by Riddell. And, definitely, please bookmark this post and feel free to share far and wide with others you know you will appreciate this exciting news.





Smarter Football

Football players, coaches, parents and fans are being inspired by Riddell's Smarter Football initiative. Smarter Football, of course encompasses technically advanced protective gear as well as safe game playing practices. But it's also focused on the bigger picture: impacting our athletes, their schools and families, and the communities in which they live.


What is Smarter Football?
  • Practicing Safe Tackling
  • Ensuring Proper Nutrition 
  • Upholding Excellent Sportsmanship
  • Maintaining Good Grades
