NFL Flag is the non-contact version of American football providing children age 8-
14 the ability to enjoy the fastest growing sport in the UK and Ireland. NFL Flag teaches the fundamentals of American football while instilling NFL values and the importance of eating healthy and being active through a 6-12 week curriculum.
Over 10,000 kids in the UK have already taken part in the NFL Flag programme, presented by Subway.
We went to The Summer Bowl in Chiswick which is the national final of these tournaments, the culmination of all of the regional tournaments which brings together all of the winning schools.
We arrived to huge NFL signs and a huge excitement coming from all the students as they waited patiently to play.
We were introduced to the basic rules by the friendly volunteers.
The highlight was meeting some of the American Football players. They were so friendly.
And as you can see, they were massive!
We enjoyed watching the games which are fast paced and suitable for all standards. The terms are also mixed.
It is a great way to get all kids involved in sport. You can see the enthusiasm they were watching their score come up on the digital scoreboard.
NFL Flag Presented by Subway® is currently operating in eight cities including London, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Bristol, Gloucester, Peterborough and Cardiff, with plans to roll out the programme to Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.
