HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The San Francisco 49ers announced this morning that the organization will underwrite the entire cost of the Hawaii High School Athletic Association (HHSAA) middle school and high school coaches training through USA Football’s Heads Up Football program this year.
This marks the second year the 49ers to have financed Heads Up Football training for coaches in Hawaii. Approximately 800 coaches completed Heads Up Football training in 2018 as a result of the 49ers pledge.
HHSAA, the 49ers and USA Football will also host a fun and free youth football camp at the Spalding Boys and Girls Clubhouse in Honolulu on Friday, May 17, from 3-5 p.m. HT.
“The health and well-being of every HHSAA student-athlete is our highest priority,” HHSAA Executive Director Christopher Chun said in a statement. “The San Francisco 49ers’ immense generosity coupled with USA Football’s in-person trainings and digital curriculum will afford our students even greater football experiences. In addition to the game’s fitness and social benefits, football unites our schools’ communities and spirit in an extraordinary way. We value our partnership with the 49ers and USA Football.”
