Our kids heard that there would be organized intramural games during recess, they became ecstatic. They haven't had an opportunity to compete in organized athletics and by setting up these contests at recess, I was able to gauge interest to create both a boys and girls flag football team!

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

Some challenges I had/have to face is that our kids are extremely underserved and have not been exposed to organized athletics with actual rules.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

I have already seen an increase in participation during recess time. Kids can't wait to be selected on a team so they can immediately start competing.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students and adults work together to select equal teams as well as police the rulebook.
