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.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

I have students who want to be more active at recess. Football has taken over and there are multiple games being played at a time.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We were able to have conversations about the importance of being a team player, not just in the game of football but in class and when they get a job when they get older.
