8:47 am
blocking and tackling. we're hitting a number of different areas when it comes to player safety. nothing is more important than safety. a win here in there will not matter in two years if the kid will forget about it anyway. >> reporter: we were inside a moment ago where you saw the coaches doing that indoor classroom training. they will take everything outside here to the readers training facility in alameda to put into practice what they learned. they will be teaching one another and critiquing one another to make sure they are blocking properly and recognize how to block properly to avoid head-to-head contact which can cause concussion. the idea is they take what they learn here back to their communities. they are hoping this spreads from here in oakland throughout the state. they are trying to do what they can to get the next generation of football players safe. this is one their learning fundamentals and this is when they learn how to be safe when they are playing the game. >> it's such an important topic. i enjoyed the tour you took us

8:49 am
it for you and your child is playing youth sports? safety was the number one concern that those parents had. clearly it is on a lot of parents minds. that's why these coaches are here. to make sure they learn to keep this game as safe as possible for these football players. >> thank you. lets head over that way. >> i heard we're going to get a little wet today. a little bit. not too much. spotty shower's we have seen over the last few days continuing one more day as we get into saturday. we will be mostly cloudy and temperatures will be on the cool two-mile aside. into the afternoon showers will continue and taper off later tonight. mother's day looks mainly dry. outside, isn't that a gorgeous view over the east bay hills. temperatures in the 50s. 54 degrees in santa rosa. 55 in san francisco.
