NFL Comes to St Mary's

The National Football League (NFL) Flag Football programme aims to use Flag Football to introduce young people to the NFL American Football and inspire the next generation of players. It also teaches them the NFL values of Respect, Resilience, Responsibility and Integrity and the importance of leading healthy, active lifestyles including healthy eating, physical activity and emotional well-being. 

In partnership with The University of Greenwich, over 12 weeks, two coaches will deliver sessions to Year Four to help them learn how to play American Football. This will culminate in a 'Spring Bowl' where St Mary's will get to pit their skills against other schools in competitive play. 

We feel that this is an exciting opportunity and can't wait to get started this Wednesday. 

Here are a few photos of our first training session.
