Safety in Youth Sports
The City of Rock Hill’s focus on safety has always been extended to our youth sports programs. In early summer 2018, PRT helped to sponsor the Tip of the Spear Contact System training for youth football coaches. The system teaches smarter techniques in blocking and defeating blocks in an effort to advance skill development and reduce helmet contact. The training will be shared with 80+ youth football coaches at coaching clinics prior to the 2018 season and with 600+ youth players in the upcoming season.
