The NFL, USA Football, GENYOUth and Fuel Up to Play 60 have teamed with SHAPE America to develop a new NFL FLAG-In-Schools online training course for health and physical educators. Designed for use in grades 3-8, these activities align with SHAPE America’s National Standards & Grade-Level Outcomes for K-12 Physical Education (PE), and are easy to integrate into existing PE curriculums or for use before, during or after school.

The popular NFL FLAG-In-Schools program aims to increase physical activity among youth by providing flag football resources to schools in under-served communities. This dynamic online course offers video-based instruction, animated lessons and tips from experienced educators to help physical educators bring this program to life for their students.

Lessons included in this curriculum are broken down into four sections that mimic a NFL player’s playing experiences; Mini Camp, Organized Team Activities (OTA’s), Pre-Season and Regular Season. Each lesson uses a combination of individual and small and large group skill development activities.

Here’s the link to register for the free new on-line course.
