“Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose”— The NFL Flag programme presented by Subway® comes to a school near you!
Last month over 1,000 children descended on Chiswick along with some star NFL players to play flag football—the non-contact version of American football. The day-long Summer Bowl tournament was held at the King’s House Sports Ground and was the culmination of programmes and regional tournaments held all around the country.
The programme aims to develop children’s character by focusing on the NFL core values of Respect, Integrity and Responsibility, and to improve their nutritional knowledge and the importance of being active.
American Football is the fastest-growing sport in the UK.. The game focuses on the fundamentals of American football, while instilling the NFL values and the importance of being active and living a healthy lifestyle—the same values shared by the programme’s sponsor, Subway®.
Currently the NFL Flag programme presented by Subway® is operating in eight cities including London, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Bristol, Gloucester, Peterborough and Cardiff and over 10,000 kids have already taken part, with plans to roll out the programme to more UK locations and the Republic of Ireland shortly
Each city has a number of schools utilising the NFL Flag programmeand each region has already hosted regional tournaments. The Summer Bowl is the national final of these tournaments, the culmination of all of the regional tournaments that brings together all of the winning schools. The goal is to get lots and lots of schools and teachers trained on how to teach NFL Flag in their schools so children can then compete at the Summer Bowl every year.
