Football Legislation

MMYFCL Community,

I am sure many of you are aware of the state bill being introduced to ban tackling in football, checking in lacrosse and soccer, and heading in soccer until age 14. Here is a link to the article. http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/maryland/politics/bs-md-football-safety-legislation-20180206-story.html

Our Mid Maryland President, Mike Milani met with Del. Terri Hill, the sponsor of the bill this week. Mike discussed our views on tackle football and explained all the benefits of the sport to the youth that play. Unfortunately, it looks like the bill will move forward in the Maryland House Ways and Means Committee.

Coach Melvin from the Reisterstown Mustangs has started an online petition against the proposed legislation. The link is below if you would like to sign it and/or forward it.
