Due to continued studies that have found an association between head injuries sustained during participation in youth tackle football and impairments later in life, the Coffeyville Recreation Commission would like to announce beginning in the fall of 2019, all youth football leagues will be flag football oriented. The only equipment to be used going forward will be Mouth Pieces and Flags. Input from local and state coaches emphasize safety should be the first priority. With the greater risk of brain related problems associated with playing youth tackle football area coaches, the CRC Board, and the CRC Sports Advisory Committee’s focus is the safety of participants while developing physical skill and mental readiness.
Coffeyville Recreation Commission strives to ensure a positive safe environment for the youth.
