middle school coach at private school
These flags are basically the bicycle flag pole that we used as kids for our bikes with a few exceptions: - the poles separate in half which I love - the flags are a nylon fabric and not plastic - the pole tips are pointed I use these for weekly training sessions and daily summer camps for K-8th school kids. With these 10 flags and a set of 10 cones I can set up almost any type of training session US Soccer has for this age group. I have a typical fabric fold-up chair with shoulder bag that I put these AND my chair in for easy carrying. I also use these for the corner flags for our games because they are so portable. Using these seems to make a difference in the players attitude for some reason. When they come out to the field and see everything set up, the first thing out of their mouth is What are doing today?, usually with enthusiasm. My first year of coaching was without cones or flags, boy was that tough. I will say that I find myself needing 2 more flags quite often for some reason, but for now I just use some extra cones. Ill probably pick up 2 more flags before next season because of that.
