My school was fortunate enough to receive a Flag Football Kit and i'm happy to say it was one of the best gifts we have received! Flag football makes our games safe to play because of the emphasis to pull on the flag and not "touch" or "push" another student to stop the advancement of the person with the ball.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Our primay goal is always to emphasis safety. Without safety we cannot have fun. With the flags, we were able to have fun on a daily basis without anyone getting hurt due to pushing or tackling each other.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

One of the challenges that we faced was involving everyone at the same time so that no student felt left behind. In order to overcome this challenge ,we had to have rotations where everybody got to get involved and have fun.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have seen improvement in the sense that we have become a safer school because of this kit. Our students go home with big smiles on their faces due to the fact that they had a lot of fun playing and pulling flags off of each other.
