Join The Movement

In partnership with Georgia Shape, the Atlanta Falcons Youth Foundation is seeking applications from Georgia elementary and middle schools, parks & rec departments, and community-based organizations interested in expanding participation in NFL Flag Football. Open to all children ages 6 to 14, NFL Flag Football delivers unsurpassed fun while also enabling children to improve their physical strength, flexibility and aerobic capacity – ultimately contributing to reduced levels of childhood obesity. In August 2017, the Atlanta Falcons launched Rise Up! 159, a new statewide flag football initiative, with school partners in every one of Georgia’s 159 counties. Visit to apply for a grant.
