Flagball for the '90s.
Windemuth, Timothy Martin
This text, prepared for college and high school physical education teachers and coaches, describes flagball, a safe and enjoyable alternative to the game of tackle football. The book covers fundamentals, drills to teach these fundamentals, and strategies of the game. The book stresses a practical, hands-on approach to teaching, using sample learning progressions to take the instructor from the basics to game-like scrimmages. The publication is divided into nine chapters: (1) Introduction; (2) Offensive Fundamentals (passing, passcatching, blocking, and ball exchange); (3) Offensive Formations and Play Selection; (4) Defensive Fundamentals (defensive line play, and line backer and defensive back); (5) Team Defense; (6) Special Teams; (7) Coaching Strategies; (8) Rules, Mechanics, and Modifications; and (9) Classroom and Coaching (class organization and schedule, outline of a 10-week flagball unit, skills test for class, evaluation for class, and an example of an athletic team practice).
