Grassroots & HD Reaction Safety Initiatives for 2017


HD Reaction Fall Check Up:

As we usher in the 2017 Spring GYFL Season, we are excited to announce the Grassroots Safety Awareness Initiative.  With HD Reaction, the GYFL will provide every athlete a platform for play at an elite level and a forum for peak performance based on scientific methodology.

HD Reaction will help prepare you for the upcoming season like a real Pro using the HD Reaction Fall Checkup. All GYFL athletes past and present have an opportunity to be screened by expert trainers of Explosive Performance. Any current athlete and GYFL alum may participate in these free screenings.

The Functional Movement Screening (FMS) is a series of movement analyses designed to evaluate the athlete’s strength and flexibility within the range of motion. The Trigger Point Myofascial Release, will relieve muscle spasms and knots, revitalizing those overworked and tired muscles that can hinder optimum physical performance. The ACL screening will evaluate the integrity and stability of the knee ligaments.

Each screening has been specifically selected to ensure that you enter the season ready to put in the work to reach the next level.  The focus of each screening is to help each athlete prevent injury and maximize performance.

Smart Brain Baseline Concussion Program:

As a part of this very important initiative the GYFL will also be introducing baseline concussion testing and management through Sports Brain. Concussion Education is an integral component of every sport entity that cares about its athletes. The GYFL in conjunction with Sports Brain will monitor return to play data to ensure athletes are given the appropriate care needed for full recovery.

All GYFL athletes are encouraged to take advantage of the service provided through the Sports Brain app. Participation in this comprehensive concussion management program is a major step in ensuring each player is properly evaluated before resuming game play and practices. Concussion baseline testing is mandatory at the high school and collegiate levels.

Youth athletes are finally being given access to a very necessary tool to address injury responsibly and outline individual plans for return.

Stress the importance of each of these opportunities.  If there are questions, please forward my information so each can be appropriately addressed.  We want 100% participation from your organizations.
