Player Safety

Safety Measures

At the Dublin Rebel, we take player safety seriously. We understand that each and every American Football Player is a volunteer who’s playing a game. They need to be able to get up and go to their day job on the Monday after the game or practice. To that end, we support the initiatives that the Irish American Football League has outlined. We have expanded on these safety measures as well in an effort to set the standard for the game in Ireland.

The team also holds internal sessions to improve the coordination between the coaching staff. This benefits the staff by ensuring everyone is working together toward the same goal, using the same verbiage and tools.

Drills

Building from the Coaching platform, all drills are focused on the safety of the player. This is facilitated by the coaching staff’s deep understanding of what skills the player must become proficient in to be successful. We then allocate the proper amount of time to establish these core competencies. The focus is on ways to execute the skills in a safe manner against opposing players.
