Safe Contact

Cowichan Football coaches have been trained in Football Canada’s Safe Contact tackling and blocking system. It is essential that proper techniques of tackling and blocking are coached in a safe progressive manner. The Safe Contact system is coached at every practice at every level.


We are all aware of how positive the game of football can be for our youth. But like any sport our kids play, it is incumbent on the organizers and coaches to teach young athletes how to play the game safely. That’s why we are encouraging you to participate in Football Canada’s Safe Contact program.


An integral part of Football Canada’s National Coaching Certification Program, Safe Contact teaches safe tackling and blocking techniques along with safety education and awareness. Every football player needs to be able to perform the football fundamentals taught in Safe Contact, regardless of what position they play on the field.
