California Democrats are considering a bill to ban tackle football for children, citing the dangers of the sport for kids under 12.

This proposal comes after previous failed attempts.

Advocates argue that the risk of concussion in children is too high to allow tackle football to continue.

Despite a decline in youth tackle football participation, there was a slight increase in 2023.

According to a California Interscholastic Federation’s participation survey 84,626 were injured in 2022 playing tackle football.

The survey reported 89,178 players were injured in 2023.

If the bill passes, the ban would not take effect until 2026.
