Back to Sports Nights

The National Football League (NFL) has partnered with National PTA for the Back to Sports initiative, which helps PTAs across the country educate their communities on wellness—from concussion education to NFL PLAY 60 tips on nutrition and staying active.

Back to Sports Nights helps PTAs build excitement in their communities about the start of sports season, while also educating families about youth sports safety. The night includes stations aimed at key health issues including:

  • Keeping families active with NFL PLAY 60
  • Concussion symptoms and treatment
  • Hydration tips
  • Proper tackling with Heads Up Football

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced this NFL-PTA Back to Sports partnership in Cincinnati, Ohio, at the 2013 Annual National PTA Convention and Exhibition in June. View the announcement.
