Moms tackle concussions

BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns and USA Football hosted 150 Northeast Ohio football mothers for a Moms Football Safety Clinic at the team's training facility.

The clinic is an interactive and educational forum designed to educate moms about how the game is being played safer through improved coaching techniques, concussion awareness and heat and hydration education.

CONCUSSIONS: High school helmet safety ratings

During the Browns' inaugural event, participants learned about concussion awareness, proper nutrition and heat and hydration; practiced proper tackling techniques; and heard directly from University Hospitals' medical experts. The Moms Football Clinic also allows individuals an opportunity to interact with other moms from around the sport and discuss mutual topics of interest.

The Browns event is one of a series of football safety clinics for moms around the NFL, hosted in conjunction with NFL teams and USA Football to improve the sport at all levels of play. Independent non-profit USA Football is the official youth football development partner of the Browns with members in all 50 states.
