With American Football not being a traditional sport in the UK, we realise that there will be many teachers across the UK who may not have ever played or experienced the sport apart from perhaps seeing the NFL on TV.
With our curriculum time flag football coaching, and after school clubs we of course are able to provide qualified coaches to provide coaching in both schools and colleges. We do also recognise that many teachers are embracing the sport and also aiming to gain continuous improvement in their professional skills and knowledge, beyond the basic training they may have initially received.
What courses do we offer?
We have two different CPD courses for teachers – one for KS2 teachers going over the fundamentals of 6Flag™ and one for our 8Flag® program which is designed for those in KS3 and beyond taking people into being able to play the game in colleges and universities.
“I participated in a half day American football CPD run by AFD. This was great as we got to have an understanding of how flag football works through matches. All adults were very competitive and Matt continued to make this fun and challenging for all and was happy to take any questions throughout. I would recommend this to all schools and teacher’s to take part in a new, fun and competitive sport for all.”
Jack Robinson, Head Sports Coach, Bovingdon Primary Academy
