Pittsburgh Flag Football League Says Partnership With Higher Achievement Was A Huge Success

PITTSBURGH - The Pittsburgh Flag Football League started their partnership with summer camp Higher Achievement in early June to teach the children involved in the game of flag football. Two counselors from the league Saleem Brightwell and Dan
Kaufman spent their Tuesdays and Wednesdays teaching techniques that also could help the children translate to tackle football. Not only do the camp counselors run drills that help the children but they also have them play games as well as scrimmages
towards the end of camp. The campers range from ages of 10-15 and come from all different areas around the Pittsburgh area.

“It was truly an unforgettable experience, the kids are great and working with a guy as experienced as Saleem was truly an honor,” said Dan.

Higher Achievement is a free summer camp for any child in the Pittsburgh public school system filling the gaps in the education system to provide the space for kids to receive additional support. Higher Achievement is committed to advancing a vision that ensures that their scholars promise and potential is realized.

The Pittsburgh Flag Football League offers Fall, Spring and Summer summer seasons which teaches children from the ages 5yr -15yr the rules of flag football through weekly practices and games.
