Yes, unfortunately Face Tackling is still taught at the Youth Football Level EVEN THOUGH IT IS ILLEGAL almost anywhere you go. Most Youth organizations adhere to their States Football Rules, which make Face Tackling illegal -- but many of the coaches and Referees do not know it because they are playing/coaching/refereeing football the same way they did when they were young or in high school when there was not a rule regarding Face Tackling.
In our City Youth Football League the Football Coaching staff participates in off-season football camps (both NFL and College) where they have learned that this is illegal as well as learning the proper/safe way to tackle. However, sadly, with many of the teams we play it is obvious the players are being taught to face tackle which drastically increases their players chances of receiving severe neck injuries.
