To support high quality PE and grow opportunities for students to be physically active before, during and after school, in 2014, with the support of the NFL Foundation, the NFL and GENYOUth developed a turn-key approach to the crisis in physical inactivity by supporting America’s PE teachers with resources to help students build a foundation for healthy, lifelong physical activity through football. NFL FLAG-In-Schools Kits allow for students to get active and learn the basics of football in a fun environment.
This kit is a great way to give your students the opportunity to “Play 60” while introducing them to the fast-paced fun of NFL FLAG. Getting 60 minutes of play a day is an essential part of youth leading a healthy lifestyle, and flag football offers a fun way to stay active and build important skills. Thanks to the NFL Foundation, your students are ready to #FuelGreatness!
