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

"Having a chance to use the curriculum that was provided by the NFL FLAG program was awesome. My students grew more confident in wanting to learn and play with footballs. I had children who were scared to even play catch with a football, never mind join a team game. The material is so user-friendly and age-appropriate that it also helped with my confidence as a teacher teaching the sport."
