After four successful stops at various NFL facilities, USA Football partnered with the Indianapolis Colts to round out the 2019 Protection Tour Friday night at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center.
Prior to the start of the event, attendees chose between a temporary tattoo station, a chance to be photographed wearing a Colts replica helmet and a forty-yard dash station. While the kids had fun impersonating their favorite players wearing a Colts replica helmet, they also had the opportunity to get their own helmets fitted for the upcoming season by the 12 Riddell Representatives who were present. Additionally, Riddell supplied supplemental education for parents to ensure their child is properly protected to enjoy the fun and fitness of football. Said one parent, “Riddell was so helpful with teaching my kid the proper fit of his helmet and why it needs to fit a certain way.”
Also in attendance helping coach youth players were two former Colt players – Geneo Riley, who’s also a USA Football Master Trainer, and Mark Herrmann, former Colts quarterback. Kids ran through a variety of drills, including several from USA Football’s nationally endorsed Heads Up Football program.
This last stop with the Colts was full of football fundamentals and fun and provided a perfect way to end this year’s Protection Tour. We hope to see you next year!
