Instead of tackling, LINX Camps Flag Football players grab flags from the belts of opposing players. Flag Football gives campers a chance to learn and play quarterback, running back and wide receiver positions, while also learning a variety of basics including passing patterns, blocking formations and hand-offs. Campers also focus on agility and scrimmage.
All LINX Flag Football Campers receive equal playing time in all positions, benefiting from the opportunity to gain an understanding of the game from our expert coaches and counselors.
Team Challenges, Record Breaking Games and "Beat the Coach" Activities are all part of the game! Emphasis is placed on the development of key skills, practicing good sportsmanship, and learning the importance of dedication and perseverance.
Paul is a graduate of Bridgewater State University, and was the football team’s Defensive Lineman (2009 to 2012), winning awards that included 2-time Defensive Player of the year and MVP. His professional sports accomplishments include playing Defensive Lineman, Fullback, and Team Captain (2012 – 2014) for Green Bay Blizzard, a professional indoor football league based in Wisconsin. In 2015 he was a fullback and part of the playoff-qualifying team for the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks.
After playing professional football, Paul went on to coach the defensive line at Glen Rock High School in Glen Rock, New Jersey, paving the way to a State Championship qualifying team. In 2016 he was the Defensive Line Coach at Milford High School, again launching a team into the playoffs. As Division 3 Defensive Line and Strength Coach in 2017 for Dean College, Franklin, Massachusetts, Paul led his players to finish #2 in the league.
Sports and leadership are Paul’s lifelong passions, making him an ideal, wholehearted Sorts Supervisor at LINX Camps. “To pass that on to others and to see them grow is what I truly look forward to every day of my life. I just can’t wait to have fun, day in and day out, and learn a lot of things along the way!”
"When I met Paul, I knew right away he had the right stuff for LINX Camps. His knowledge of all sports is evenly matched with his focus on teamwork and building groups focused on good sportsmanship and inclusion." ~ Josh Schiering, Executive Director of LINX Camps.
Days at LINX Camps are typically spent laughing and learning with friends! Flag Football Camp includes three daily sports intensives, a lunch period, a swim period (including lessons from trained LINX Swim Instructors who implement our safe, fun-based, non-stress approach to teaching), and a bonus camp activity period.
While Flag Football Campers are immersed in sports sessions for half the day, they also have the opportunity to interact with non-flag football camp friends during opening and closing ceremonies, as well as lunch. Our popular camp-wide activities help us to build a sense of camp community.
Many campers choose Flag Football Camp for multiple sessions to sharpen their skills. Some compliment that with a week in another LINX Sports Camp or a week in anLX Sports Camp for a more intense sports focus. You may also add a General Camp or Specialty Camp to experience all LINX Camps has to offer!
