Players and Coaches from the University of Birmingham American Football Programmes were invited to the Tottenham Hotspur training ground to participate in a Heads Up Coaching Clinic delivered by Detroit Lions Director of Youth Football Chris Fritzsching.

The players and coaches from the Lions Youth, Junior, Women’s and University teams were represented.  The focus of the day was to develop the players and coaches knowledge of USA Football’s Head Up Tackling & Blocking systems which promotes safe tackling and blocking techniques whilst keeping the head out of all contact.

The session was supported by two Detroit Lions Hall of Fame players, these being Barry Sanders and Lomas Brown.  

The Birmingham Lions would like to thank the Detroit Lions, Detroit Lions Director of Youth Football Chris Fritzsching, the NFL and NFL UK for the opportunity to continue to develop our players and coaches.
