Flag Football has seen a rise in popularity across the nation. In this blog we will uncover why this sport has seen an increase in traction and how to get a flag football league up and running in your community.
Why Flag Football?
As sports have evolved people have become more aware of potential injuries such as broken bones, sprains and concussions. In traditional football the reality of enduring a concussion in your sports career is almost commonplace. As research has come to better understand the lasting effects of concussions, parents are opting for a safer form of the sport. Additionally, the cost is much cheaper for flag football than tackle with the reduced amount of equipment required.
Lastly, it is inclusive for children of all abilities and incorporates the elements of teamwork, community, determination, speed, hand-eye coordination and more.
