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

" I have introduced the sport of Flag Football to my middle school classes, and they are happy to be part of the Fuel Up to Play 60 program. They were never introduced to the sport before. All boys and girls are having fun and enjoying the football unit. They are learning about football and how to play the game."
