The free event will be held Aug. 1 at the Buckeyes' Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
Participants will receive classroom instruction from health experts and on-field training from Ohio State coaches and former players.

The NFL has promoted several programs that work to improve safety in football at various levels. The league faces a federal lawsuit over concussion-related injuries by thousands of former players.

In an invitation to the OSU-NFL Moms Football Safety Clinic sent to female NFL fans in Ohio, Goodell says: ``We want to give you a chance to see firsthand what we are doing to make youth football safer and better.''
