Coastal Blitz NFL Flag Football Spring '22

Coastal Blitz NFL Flag Football is an exciting new league, presented by Lane Sports Group for kids ages 4-17. We offer youth a fun alternative to contact football with the philosophy that "everyone plays" and is given an equal chance to participate. 

Our primary goal is to provide participants with a safe and fun team sport in which each child feels cared for. Our second goal is for kids to understand that the lessons they learn through sports are lessons they will use in life.

These six CORE VALUES are encouraged through our program:

SPORTSMANSHIP - Understanding that we are all competitive in nature and everyone is trying to succeed however, there will always be someone better. And remembering that good things will come to those who congratulate others on their effort and victories.

HARD WORK - You must work hard in life in order to achieve your goals and fulfill your dreams. A good work ethic developed as a kid translates to a good work ethic as an adult. Besides, hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard. 

OPTIMISM - This is a hard one because it is very easy to get down on yourself, get mad at your coaches, or say "I can't". However, sports teaches us that we can't just throw our hands up in the air and give up. Stay positive and look at the glass as always being half full. 

CONFIDENCE - Confidence is NECESSARY! Confidence sets you apart from others and during tough times, it will keep you from giving up. Confidence means having a mindset that says losing is not an option therefore you believe in the process, you learn from losses and you continue to grow and excel. 

TEAMWORK Team sports teaches that you must trust that everyone is going to do their best for the betterment of the team and when one person is feeling down, then the other team mates will step up while encouraging their fallen team mate. In life as well as sports, a team is needed to reach goals and to survive. Embrace it. 

DEDICATION/ COMMITMENT - Once you start something, you need to finish it, even if you want to quit or give up. Quitting because you just don't want to do something anymore is not being considerate of your teammates who are counting on you to be there. 

We hope that promoting and encouraging these six CORE VALUES will indoctrinate the kids to a new way of thinking.
