Youth Tackle Football Ban: A State-By-State Guide To ALL Propsals & Legislation

Youth Tackle Football—Proposed Legislation

With increasing attention focused on football and the risk of brain injury, legislation has been proposed in several states to ban youth tackle football. 

We created an interactive map and timeline to keep track of proposals and legislation.

There are only 5 states with active proposals. Hopefully, more states will follow over the coming months and we will keep the map (and this guide) updated with new developments.
