It extends to youth football families statewide.

The Las Vegas Raiders-USA Football Webinar Series, presented by Intermountain Healthcare, will be conducted live on June 17 and 18, from 6-7 p.m. PT. The video webinars will provide insight and direction to help Nevada youth leagues deliver fun and positive experiences when football responsibly returns to play.

Presentations will be led by USA Football master trainers with nearly four decades of combined coaching experience on the high school level.
