The Sports Leaders Award focuses upon the non-contact version of American football, and is designed to provide a great introduction to the most accessible version of the game.
Interest in Flag football is growing significantly and our Sports Leaders courses are designed for pupils from Year 6 upwards, working alongside PE teachers, to gain an insight into the game and learn some of the skills to take back to their schools.
We recently received some Sports Leadership and Teacher CPD training from American Flag Football Development, the sessions gave staff and students a great insight into this dynamic and energetic sport, which is a great addition to our school games programme. We will shortly be running a competition for year 6 students trained by Year 8 Sports Leaders and Staff.
