Taking a run at flag football

A group of 30 Grade 7 and 8 students finished a pilot course in flag football last week. The eight-session class was a partnership be- tween several organizations, including the Town of Fort Frances and the Northwestern Health Unit. The pro- gram was a mix of skills, drills and scrimmage, to develop fundamental football skills, in a non-contact form. The players practiced adjacent to the Fort Frances Muskies football team twice a week, in the Muskie sports field, and even enjoyed a little direction from Muskie Coach Lou Gauthier from time to time.
