Valley high schools making football safer

Phoenix Union High School District is making football safer for its student athletes by implementing a comprehensive football safety instructional program called Safe Football at all ten football schools. Safe Football, founded by former ASU and NFL lineman Scott Peters, will train every football coach and player in the District annually over the next three years. 

Through proper technique training, players can avoid serious injuries, such as concussions.  Players and coaches will learn the Safe Football techniques, from pre-snap stance to the point of impact for blocking, engaging blockers, tackling and tackle avoidance, without using their helmet as a tool for contact. "There are many parents out there who are not allowing their kids to play football anymore," says Scott Peters who developed Safe Football. "If we can make football safer, the game can sustain," he adds. 

Upcoming camps: 

  • Cesar Chavez High School, Friday, August 26, 3 p.m.
  • Betty Fairfax High School, Saturday, August 27, 9 a.m.
  • Call Scott Peters for more camp information: (480) 848-8273

September is national obesity awareness month. 

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has come up with new guidelines for parents who are dealing with obese children. Childhood obesity has become a larger issue throughout the world as obesity rates continue to increase. In Arizona, child obesity rates are about 15% between ages 2 to 4, and this increases to around 20% between ages 10 to 17. The AAP has indicated that the issues surrounding childhood obesity stems from a lack of knowledge on how to deal with childhood obesity. The AAP has come up with a few tips for doctors and parents to encourage lifestyle changes:  
1. Parents and doctors should not encourage dieting. 
2. Parents should avoid "weight talk," such as fomenting on their own weight of their child's weight. 
3. Parents should never tease teens about their weight.
4. Families should eat together regularly. 
5. Parents should help children develop a healthy body image by encouraging them to get a balanced diet to exercise for fitness, not weight loss. 
Throughout the world, obesity is becoming an issue that isn't being addressed completely due to a lack of knowledge. We would like to reverse the trend within Arizona. We would enjoy the opportunity to share all of the ways to properly address childhood obesity as well as assist with some solutions with the assistance of one of our principals at Heritage Elementary. We also would love to assist with any stories involving Obesity Awareness Month. If you have any questions please let us know.

Can you wear white after Labor Day?  Five Fashion Myths Debunked and how they got started, 

In 1894 Labor Day was recognized as a National Holiday. For the Upper 
Class this meant packing and heading for the beach. White became the color of the season as it reflected light and was definitely cooler. Meanwhile, back in the cities, everyone was still working and wearing work clothes.
It wasn't until after the depression that they could afford White clothes too .The Elite made it a Faux Paus to never wear white after Labor Day.

We'll TIMES HAVE CHANGED!!! Here we go!

1. Yes you can wear white jeans all year! All it takes is an oversized sweater or  Knit top, a scarf a pair of  Heels or boots and you will look terrific.

2.  Mix up those patterns. Stripes are a terrific way to keep the look going into fall.
Mixing prints is so popular.  Now and it is a great way to update your look
Choosing color's that are similar is the easiest way to learn. I love that this outfit incorporates traditional summer pieces and gives it a trendy, fun 
High fashion vibe.

3. The summed white dress I love this look.  
Very light weight sweater worn over the dress without of hardware.
chunky belt, layered. Necklaces. It transforms this soft summer outfit into a fabulous statement 
piece wear with cowboy boots or funky boot to complete the look.

4.  The ultimate summer dress. Handwoven, one of a kind by Michi out of 
New York .The shell detail is so fun and unexpected and the leather jacket dresses it down, Love it!
