Chesterfield Football Association coaches are Heads Up Certified by USA Football

By Trica Cullinane on 5/4/2015

More than 2,100 youth tackle football players age 5-15 across 100 teams and 10 youth organizations spanning four states were matched for location, socio-economic, playing standard and other factors. Datalys placed independent athletic trainers at the leagues’ practice and game fields to manage and document player health. Datalys’ study of the Heads Up Football program employed the same intensive methodology as its NCAA Injury Surveillance Program and the National Injury Treatment, Injury and Outcomes Network (NATIONTM). Of the 2,108 players in the study’s sample, 1,404 were in Heads Up Football-practicing leagues, and 704 were in leagues that did not employ Heads Up Football. Datalys sought a two-to-one difference in 2014 Heads Up Football program players to balance its youth football safety surveillance data from 2012-13.

What Happens if Severe/Inclement Weather Occurs During Practice

By Mike Williams on 8/6/2014

What should I do when severe weather occurs during practice?

Last night provided a good reminder of what to do in the event of inclement/severe weather.     When there is a threat of severe weather, CFA and City of Chesterfield are in close communication to assess/monitor the status of the fields.   

An air horn will notify coaches, players, and parents when the there is a delay due to severe weather.  It is City of Chesterfield and CFA policy that if practice is delayed or cancelled (listen for horn) due to bad weather during practice, every coach, player, and parent goes to their cars and not the pavilion. 

If a player is dropped off and no parent is present, the coaches are responsible to get their players in cars.  When there is a chance of severe weather, we strongly suggest that you should stay with your son instead of dropping him off.

Each strike of lightning results in a 20 minute delay. 

In all cases, do not wait for a horn if you feel conditions are not safe for your son.   

Prior to Practice - Field Status will be updated at 3pm each day.  You can check CVAC Field Status at:
