The 49ers Youth Football Program strives to make a positive impact on the community while promoting a more enjoyable, safer game for boys and girls. In 2014 alone, the 49ers Youth Football Program impacted more than 17,000 youth in partnership with the NFL’s “Play 60” initiative, which encourages children to get outside and play for 60 minutes each day. Using the game of football as a foundation, 49ers Youth Football strives to provide a future rich in goals, encouragement, activity, and health for youth across the nation.
