Chichester Sharks Head Coach Dayle Kirby has been visiting Bishop Luffa School to introduce the students to flag football.
On Tuesday, Dayle worked with two PE classes, covering various aspects of the game, including catching, tackling and running routes. The group of around forty girls took to this new sport with surprising ease, as their coach-for-the-day announced the Sharks’ plans to develop a youth section in 2008.
Dayle, who also teaches and coaches at Christ’s Hospital in Horsham, returns to the Chichester school for another ‘taster’ on Monday. “After that,” he commented, “it will be down to the students to decide if they would like to play flag football more regularly. I really hope they do,” he added, “as a number of them showed real ability.”
