Length of Heads Up Football Program Commitment
Heads Up Football® is a calendar year-based program. An organization is only considered a participant and achieves Heads Up Football® once all requirements have been met.
Each year an organization wishes to participate in Heads Up Football, it must register online and meet each requirement again in that year, regardless of participation in previous years.
