Is football dangerous?
Like any sport, there are risks with playing the game.  Football is a full contact sport. Having said that, it is very safe and we rarely see injuries outside of small scrapes and bruises.  According to AMEA there are actually more concussions in girls soccer than in youth football. (http://equipmentmanagers.org/featured-story/concussions-more-prevalent-in-girls-soccer-than-football)  Our coaches and board members have all been training on how to avoid concussions or any other serious injuries.
Football is different than it was when we grew up.  Instead of being taught and rewarded for making a big hit with you head it is now a serious penalty.

Is it better to let my kid grow up and get bigger before I let him play?
No.  As stated above football as a full-contact sport.  In order to avoid injury, it is very important to learn how to make a block or tackle and more importantly how to get blocked and tackled.  The longer you wait to enroll your child the further behind they are getting in learning these skills.  Starting your child as a scout or gremlin will give them the ability to learn the game before any of the kids are big enough to cause any real damage.
