We hope that everyone is doing well despite the current situation in dealing with the COVID-19 outbreak.
This update will provide you with more information about the 2020 season. Also we start our weekly Mentor Skills Session where we provide you with our recommended links to "how to" video clips on various skills that you can work on with your family as you maintain your social distancing practices.
This week we start with the skill that we get asked about the most - HOW TO THROW A FOOTBALL.

MENTOR SKILLS SESSION - HOW TO THROW A FOOTBALL
We are happy to introduce MENTOR SKILLS SESSION, a weekly focus on the development of key skills through on-line video clips that will help in preparation for the 2020 season.
The skill that we are most asked about is throwing! So we thought our first MENTOR SKILLS SESSION should be about HOW TO THROW A FOOTBALL. We've collected 3 "how to" video clips to help understand the technique of throwing.
Youth that are older can view the videos and then practice with a family member. We recommend, for youth that are younger, that an adult view the video and teach them the techniques.

Entering our 14th season, Mentor Flag Football is proud to have used sports to build character in our players. We believe that by giving coaches the proper instruction they can ensure that the situations that arise during a game will be used to focus on character traits we want in our players. We do so by focusing on a key character trait each week - we call it the Mentor Tip of the Week - and we ask our coaches to talk about that trait with their teams.
Boys and Girls love to play football - just ask them what they're playing during recess! Flag Football combines the best in safety, physical activity and strategic thinking. Each game is composed of a series of plays which are strategically planned followed by bursts of physical activity. And because Flag Football does not involve tackling it's much safer than tackle football while maintaining what kids love about the sport.
