Typically, I have all of my players get their flags on before practice starts in order to transition smoothly from our workout to drills. A few days ago, one of my 6th graders was fooling around with his flags, pulling them off and waiving them in front of an 8th grade boy. One rule I have with the flags is that if any player unnecessarily pulls a flag, they have to take their flags off for the remainder of practice. If flags are required for a drill they have to sit out or I may include them in the drill without needing flags. The 8th grader came up to me and told me that the 6th grader was pulling his own flag and waving it in his face. I walked over to the 6th grader and asked him to put his flags back in the bag.
