                Safety Considerations
There are multiple safety concerns when implementing a flag
football unit. Here are some basic precautions to keep in mind
before implementing the unit.

     1. Contact with other students should be avoided at all cost
        during drills or scrimmage.

     2. A well conditioned surface such as grass or grasstroturf is
        ideal for all cutting and quick movement activities.

     3. Students should be advised of objects that could cause
        unintentional injury to classmates or to self such as
        earrings, necklaces, rings, etc...

     4. Students will be moving at high speeds and need ample
        room to operate.

     5. Uniforms without pockets should be worn to avoid finger
        entanglement while grabbing flags.

     6. Students should be reminded of potential impacts with the
        ball or other players.
                                 Flag Football Block Plan

      Class Journal

The students will have to keep a spiral notebook journal. At the
beginning of each class they will need to;
    Write a personal goal for the day.
At the end of the period or at home they will have to;
    Write how the lesson went
    Comment on their ability of that day on meeting their goal.
    If they did not meet it, what they could have done differently
      during the class.
    Any improvement on that day from previous days
    Any questions or comments they wish to share
Make sure the journals are brought to every class because they will be
checked at random throughout the unit. The entries do not have a
length requirement, just that you stay up-to-date on them. Failure to
bring it to class will result in a deduction in participation points. They
will be collected at the end with the unit test.
