This year flag football was held at the Chrin Community Center in Palmer Township with 21 athletes participating. Each week one athlete would be chosen to lead the stretching exercises. The athletes were taught the basic skills of flag football such as passing, kicking, and pulling off their opponents’ flags. They also learned how to play offensive and defensive positions. Each athlete was given a Fit5 program information booklet, which was then reviewed at the beginning of our weekly practices. Part of the Fit5 program was to test athletes in their ability to throw for accuracy, throw for distance, agility and speed. A great time was had by all coaches and athletes, and we are looking forward to seeing everyone again next year.
