Flag Football

Last Friday evening the boys had their flag football assessments.  85 kids showed up to demonstrate their throwing, catching, running and agility skills.  The goal of the assessment was to make sure that each of the six teams is evenly populated with children of varying skill levels.  The idea is not to have one super team of awesome flag football players against everyone else.  It was fun watching the kids do the different activities.

Wildman is not the natural athlete that Cutie Pie is but he was actually excited to try flag football after learning to play at PE at school.  I’m not a fan of tackle football for children so I’m glad that the boys are able to experience the flag version.  And I’m thrilled that it is policy for siblings to be placed on the same team.  Since practices are twice a week with games on Friday, it will be nice to have both boys on the same practice schedule.

The Friday evening assessments were cut short due to a huge storm that blew in.  The temperature dropped 15 degrees instantly and the wind kicked up.  For as fierce as the storm looked we got very little rain from it.  J ended up having to take the boys back on Saturday morning to complete their skills tests.

I’m looking forward to a fun Seahawks season!
