The NFL FLAG-In-Schools Program started in 2014

  • Developed by GENYOUth as a solution to the physical inactivity crisis
  • Supports Physical Education (PE) Teachers
  • Reaches a new population of potential players, namely girls and young children who have never played football!

The program provides NFL FLAG-In-Schools Kits, valued at $410:

NFL FLAG-In-Schools receives high ratings on almost every measure and is especially strong on:

  • Providing an opportunity for competition
  • Helping kids learn new skills and the rules of football
  • Providing an easy way for kids to engage in football and feel accomplished

"Students engage in Flag Football for the purpose of getting 60 minutes a day of physical activity. Students play each and every day before and after school, most times self directed. Students also participate within an interscholastic league in which we are in the city championship set to be played before Thanksgiving break at a Stadium on the north side of Chicago. Go Rockets!"
