FUTP 60 NFL FLAG In Schools

The NFL, USA Football, GENYOUth and Fuel Up to Play 60 teamed up to create the NFL FLAG-In-Schools Program, which aims to increase physical activity of youth by providing FLAG football resources to underserved communities.

To support high quality PE and grow opportunities for students to be physically active before, during and after school, in 2014, with the support of the NFL Foundation, the NFL and GENYOUth developed a turn-key approach to the crisis in physical inactivity by supporting America’s PE teachers with resources to help students build a foundation for healthy, lifelong physical activity through football. NFL FLAG-In-Schools Kits allow for students to get active and learn the basics of football in a fun environment.
