During 2014's clinic, Falcons strong safety William Moore showed moms how to get into a football stance.

If your child plays football, you probably worry. 

With stories of head injuries going untreated and high school players dying during practice, it's natural to wonder if your child is safe.

The Falcons would like to help you worry less. 

Atlanta's pro football team will again hold its Moms Football Safety Clinic for parents whose children are either considering or already play tackle football.

There are seven clinics planned right now — four in Georgia, two in Alabama and one in Tennessee — but the exact times and locations have not been set for all of them.

The next clinic will be 7-9 p.m. April 15 at the Falcons training facility in Flowery Branch. Registration is now open.

From 5 p.m. to 6:30, the Falcons will conduct tours of the facility every 15 minutes. 

The Falcons say the clinics will focus on "proper equipment fitting, concussion awareness and proper tackling techniques." 

There will also be on-field drills, so make sure you wear sneakers and athletic apparel. 

Current and former Falcons attend the clinics, and the team announced Wednesday that Florida State Heisman Trophy winner Charlie Ward will be at the Bainbridge clinic.
