The Value of Playing Flag Football

With the continuation of the NFL Flag Football program hosted by T&C Sports this season, it is a great responsibility to organize the practices and games that your child plays with T&C Sports.  We appreciate the opportunity to help reveal to kids the joy of competitive sports.  

We just opened the Fall NFL Flag Football registration along with two new summer flag football camps only a few weeks ago and already the response has been great.

With our expanded Pee Wee level program, it seems that parents and kids are appreciating the fun of NFL Flag Football and recognizing it as a great way to develop some of the basic athletic skills that will carry into their later years.

If you are exploring your options for this Fall season, give flag football a careful consideration.  It is much more different than the flag football games that you may have played when you were a kid. 

We strive to provide a foundation that gives children the option to play football with the same fitness and competitive benefits of tackle football, but with less risk of injury.  This program allows parents to wait until later in a child’s physical grow cycle before introducing them to the much more intense demands of tackle football while still teaching the game of football.

Along with the physical benefits of playing a sport like flag football, there are a number of character-building benefits for children. 
 
TEAMWORK
 

Youth flag football is a great team sport. Kids have the chance to play, work and interact with other children, teaching them skills to work together.  Teamwork is a big aspect of flag football as kids learn how important it is to cooperate with others and work towards a common goal. 
 
THE VALUE OF PRACTICE
 

Along with teamwork, our T&C Sports coaches will teach your child the importance of practice.  As coaches work on fundamentals to help your child learn the game, players discover that practice is an important part to playing a sport, and that without practice, improvement in any skill can be difficult.
 
HOW TO COMPETE
 

Playing a youth sport such as flag football teaches your child how to compete, as an individual and also as a member of a team. Working hard on the playing field provides learning lessons that can go beyond sports.
 
VALUABLE SOCIAL SKILLS
 

Flag football is also a great way for children to develop social skills.  By being a part of a team, children learn how to communicate and work well with others.  They will learn how to take initiative and lead, but then they also learn when it is their turn to sit back and follow.  The social skills kids gain by learning how to play with other children from different backgrounds is priceless and will continue to be an asset to them as they grow older.
 
GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP
 

Most importantly, playing flag football with T&C Sports teaches your child the value of being a good sport and behaving with integrity, respect and humility, regardless of winning or losing. Being positive and shaking hands with teammates, referees and opponents instills valuable lessons in your child.
 
Character building and social skills are certainly major benefits to flag football participation, but let’s not forget that it’s also fun and a great way to make new friends! If you want to register your son or daughter for a NFL Flag football program, follow this link to sign up today before Early Registration closes on February 1st! 

 

No matter what sport your child plays this year, we hope you and your family finds value in the excitement of team sports!

 

Pee Wee Flag Football

If your little athlete is into football but you’re concerned about safety, Pee Wee football is the answer!

T&C Sports Pee Wee flag football program provides the fun and excitement of football without the risk of injury. Our Pee Wee program is designed to introduce the game of football by improving balance, eye-hand coordination and motor skills.

All players will learn the basics of the game, including awareness of offensive and defensive field direction, along with individual skills such as running with the ball, passing and catching.

This primer program is kept simple to enable kids to grow more comfortable and self-confident in the sport.  Kids rotate through various positions to learn the importance of playing as a team member.

Based on skill level at this age, game play typically involves more running plays, but as the season progresses, more passing may be integrated. To ensure the levels of learning and fun are kept at their highest for our players, rules are enforced with an emphasis on teachable moments. At this stage, the most important outcomes are to develop a love of the game, increased self-confidence and to have fun!

Time for Flag Football!
