Flag Football for Girls: Getting Started
Girls like football too and now there is a way to get young girls involved in the sport. Flag Football may be the next big sport for girls.
Flag football is a fast-paced game that has some similarities to regular football but also many differences. Like regular football, flag football involves passing and running the ball in the open field to score touchdowns. However, unlike regular football, women’s flag football does not involve tackling. Instead, each player wears a colored flag at their waist that they must protect from being pulled off by opposing players. Flag football teaches girls an important basic motor skill, hand-eye coordination. Girls learn this skill when catching the ball on offense or intercepting the ball on defense. They also develop improved hand-eye coordination in the name of the game, the difficult task of trying to pull an opponent’s flag.
