Fall means football, right? At least it comes to mind in most people. At the Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County, fall at the Clubs mean Flag Football season. Thanks to a partnership with Buffalo Wild Wings, Boys & Girls Clubs are able to provide the equipment needed to get youth out on the field, playing against other units. A little friendly competition is proven to be good for you, at least I'm going with that. Here are five other reasons why we love our flag football season.
Youth get to travel to other clubs, just like the pros
"The kids favorite part is traveling to the other clubs," Jake, Fort Collins healthy lifestyle specialist, said. "One Club Member even said that he 'feels like the Cowboys.'"
Youth have to be responsible players on, and off, the field
"We have high standards for our team," Mica, Lovleand healthy lifestyle specialist, said. "They have to spend at least 30-45 minutes a day doing their homework, and have to show leadership in discipline in the Club...otherwise they are suspended from a game."
It allows youth to learn new skills
Youth are able to learn how to call plays and designate responsibilities during the game.
Buffalo Wild Wings = delicious
Enough said, really.
Youth get to interact with other club members
What other way could we bring together Wellington, Loveland, West Loveland and Fort Collins youth every Wednesday during the fall?
