How to Grow Youth Participation in Flag

While youth participation in sports overall has declined 13% over the last decade, more kids than ever are getting involved with flag football. Using this momentum to kickstart growth across youth football means doing three things.

  1. Encourage more parents to enroll their kids in flag football
  2. Prevent kids from quitting flag football in favor of other non-football related activities or sports
  3. Prevent kids from lapsing out of football altogether by encouraging interested families to transition into tackle (in fact, about 35% of surveyed kids who quit flag start tackle!)

You know that flag is more than just a game – here are some helpful talking points, interesting facts and figures, and considerations to help parents see for themselves.
