Last year we re-started a Flag Football league during recess. All of the students that signed up had a great time from the beginning to the end. Recess is only 30 minutes, but we told them that for the teams that play, they've already reached half of the 60 minute a day requirement to be a part of the league. We also added a class on proper nutrition that we hold for the players once a month to try and keep them accountable for eating healthy.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

As a team of students and adults, we held a discussion to see what procedures the students would be interested in putting into play for the league.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

For this year, once the weather changes, we will continue to have the nutrition classes and maybe look into a basketball league.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We believe that students are becoming more aware of what they are eating and how much water they are drinking.
