Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Tuesday, March 10 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Building The Future Of Football
Every young athlete deserves a great outlet to keep active and healthy; the challenge is often finding the right place to start. With the new Seahawks NFL FLAG page, parents and kids have a launching point to maximize how they learn, play, and enjoy the game of football.
Visit the page and you'll find step-by-step instructions that make signing-up and getting involved quick and easy.
To start, the NFL FLAG League Finder helps identify leagues near you by simply entering your zip code. In the Seattle-Tacoma area alone, there are over 30 leagues available! Prospective coaches, experienced or new to flag football, can also sign-up by using the league finder.
Can't find an NFL FLAG league in your area? The page even provides direction on how to create a new league or convert your existing flag football league into an NFL FLAG league.
To model the fundamentals, the Seahawks brought in the pros. Watch as former Seahawks safety Jordan Babineaux and Jake Heaps break down the best techniques for player and coach development. The duo tackles topics ranging from how to set up an offense and defense, keys and drills at several positions, all the way to how to warm-up.
The new NFL FLAG page is part of an ongoing effort to promote inclusivity and diversity in football as NFL FLAG welcomes athletes starting at any level. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was recently named Co-owner and Chairman of NFL FLAG as he seeks to strengthen the game in the U.S. while expanding the game globally. Between a growing NFL FLAG partnership and Wilson's new role, the Seahawks are embracing the belief that the game can empower kids and families everywhere.
"We believe that NFL FLAG provides an opportunity to transform and impact kids' lives both on and off the field," said Becca Stout, Seahawks Managing Director of Community Engagement. "It is a great way to learn the fundamentals of the game in a fun, safe and inclusive environment."
NFL FLAG is the largest flag football organization in the U.S. where girls and boys ages 5 to 17 can compete and learn fundamentals, all while being backed by the NFL. For more information, check out NFLFLAG.com today.

In the meantime, Madden lovers, gamers, and NFL fans everywhere can look forward to more opportunities to compete as their team in the near future.
