Community Involvement, Physical Activity Participation,  Teamwork

We at IS 229 started a FLAG Football league within the school and it was an immediate success!  All grades were involved. Not only did the students start learning the Basics of FLAG, they also learned how to work as a team. The students got to engage in a lot of physical activities throught the program. Thank you FUTP 60 and NFL PLAY 60 for allowing me the opportunity to help out my community. I hope you continue to help us enhance our program and make it the best it can be!

RESPECTFULLY YOURS,

WILFREDO VARGAS

How did you accomplish your goals?

We started a football draft at the school.

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

Students did not know the rules of FLAG Football or how to play, so I started a FLAG Football mini camp.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

There was alot of work involved. Staff reached out and students were happy to get involved.
