Safety and good sportsmanship are paramount in the SAFL. Below are some key things we are proud of:
- The SAFL has finalized a lengthy process of becoming one of the first ever Heads Up Certified International Leagues through USA Football, which is the new standard in American Football which ensures all Coaches to become Certified and Trained in Coaching SAFE and PROPER tackling techniques, as well is being knowledgeable in things such as concussion and hydration awareness. This is a HUGE step for the SAFL and we are very excited about it and making the game safer and better for all!!
- Jeff Majestic (SAFL Rams Coach 2013, 2014) who is also our SAFL Vice Commissioner, is our Player Safety Coordinator (PSC) and is in charge of ensuring all Coaches become Heads Up Certified for the each season. Jeff has been an excellent attribute to the league and we commend him for his commitment and dedication.
- The SAFL plays by NHFS Rules and Regulations and our officials meet on a weekly basis throughout the season to refresh and go over any new rule changes as well as game film to continuously learn and keep the league safe and fair.
- Players and coaches, as well as parents in the stands or on the sidelines, must follow certain Codes of Conduct. Officials have the right to enforce these and have the right to ask those who do not obey to leave the premises.
