Flag Football ( 7th Grade Coed)

Flag Football at Mountain Ridge is an opportunity for students to grow athletically, emotionally, and mentally. We recognize that students come to us with different abilities and skill sets, and our goal as coaches is to maximize this individual skill set to benefit the team. There are three teams, A,B, and C. Normally the A team players have a strong understanding of the game of football and recognize that each individual plays a vital role in the entire offense or defense; no one person can win/lose the game. B team players are developing these skills, but may lack the confidence to implement their skill set in a novel situation, while C team players are laying the foundation for the concept that a football team is a complex system that relies heavily on each player to do their job.

Flag Football is not just for boys, and we welcome girls. Girls are not automatically placed on C team either. In the past, some of our best A team pass rushers were girls because of their quickness, flexibility, and athleticism.

Our goal is for your student to learn a new skill set, foster positive relationships with coaches and peers, and to create a feeling that they are valued and important. We hope to see you!
