"These guidelines are based on the most recent scientific evidence, as well as the expertise of the coaches who will help implement them," said Dr. Preston M. Wolin, a member of the Sports Medicine Advisory Committee.
The Illinois High School Association approved new safety rules Wednesday to limit tackling in youth football practice in an effort to reduce head injuries, reported the Daily Herald. In March, a controversial bill sponsored by State Rep.

On the seventh day of practice, players can participate in five hours of full contact drills wearing full pads, according to the IHSA. However, no single practice can exceed …

Northbrook officials like Chicago Bear Bob Christian’s plan but did not like the proposed location in Sky Harbor Industrial Park.
Former Chicago Bear Bob Christian is exploring relocation options after Northbrook trustees voiced concerns about a proposal to relocate his Northbrook-based athletic training center to Sky Harbor Industrial Park, Chicago Tribune reported. Northbrook officials say the property at 237 Melvin Drive is zoned for industrial use and prohibits a business like, TCBOOST, which Christian co-owns. Approving the relocation would be a “slippery slope” that could change the character of the industrial park, Village Trustee Todd Heller said, Chicago Tribune reported. TCBOOST's headquarters is currently located at 600 Waukegan Rd., and has a facility in Mount Prospect, according to the business' website.
