WASHINGTON, DC  The catastrophic head and neck injuries in football players of all ages that have been the subject of recent media attention have prompted the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) to issue a policy statement aimed at reducing tackle-related injuries in young football players.

..

The statement, however, stops short of recommending a ban on the practice or setting a minimum age for tackling, which some experts have called for.

Dr Landry presented the Tackling in Youth Football statement, which was published online October 25 in Pediatrics, here at the AAP 2015 National Conference.

..

Tackling and Head Injuries

To develop the policy statement, members of the AAP Council on Sports Medicine and Fitness reviewed the literature on the incidence of injuries in youth football, the relation between tackling in youth football and concussion and other injuries, and the evidence supporting various strategies to mitigate the risks, such as keeping the head up when tackling.

..

In high-school and college football players, and probably in youth as well, about half of all injuries and the majority of concussions are related to tackling, or being tackled, Dr Landry explained.

..

The council recommends that officials and coaches enforce current rules against head-to-head hits and leading with the head, also known as “spearing,” and do what they can do to reduce the number of hits to the head overall. They also suggest that football leagues hire athletic trainers and offer non-tackling alternatives, such as flag football.
