Flag football is booming all across the globe, while traditional tackle football is struggling to find a place in the Olympics due to a variety of reasons detailed here, flag football may be the answer and not as far off from being an official Olympic sport as many may believe.
Many believe flag football is the key to American Football getting into the greatest games on earth, and Rocksolid is actively working to help make the sport safer while preserving the spirit of the game, specifically with our soft padded flag football helmets and non-contact shoulder pads, helping the sport progress even further.
According to the article, “Even more and more high school, college and pro teams are starting to reduce the number of contact practices, sporting the likes of soft-padded headgear and shoulder pads for added protection. But what if we could limit the contact players see before high school and middle school while also addressing some of the concerns for the sport related to it being fully accepted into the Olympics?”
Safety concerns and the physicality of tackle football playing multiple games in a less than 3 week window for Summer Olympic Games are a big concern, but flag football is the key to that problem and more, with Rocksolid being part of the solution.
