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

"We have been so excited to use our Flag Football kit since we got it. Our Fuel Up to Play 60 kids have organized the students in our school and got them excited about playing Flag Football at recess and also during gym time. We love that it comes with a curriculum guide and the students have used this as well as the teachers to make it impactful for the school day."
