Why Age 14?

The Flag Football Under 14 campaign was launched in 2018 to educate parents that tackle football is an inappropriate activity for children under the age 14. Flag Football Under 14 is part of the Concussion Legacy Foundation's Don't Hit KidsTM initiative, which aims to accelerate the reform of youth contact sports so that each sport promotes a youth version that does not allow purposeful repetitive brain trauma for children before age 14.
