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

"When I have girls that say, “I can actually throw a football” or “wait ’til my dad sees me throw this football – he’s never going to believe”, those successful moments add up... your kids come back and want to play after school. They want to play outside of just your Phys Ed class"
