First grade Football practice tip

My son is 7 years old and in his first season of flag football.  The coach gave me a great tip to help practice passing the football.

 He says to get down on your knees when passing back and forth
 to your child so as to be on "their" level. 
 The ball will come at them from a similar level as their team mates
 rather than from way above. 

My son was a bit shy of the ball when it came toward his face, but since we have been practicing on his level, it has helped tremendously!  This is the most simple tip EVER, but thought I'd share just in case there are other parents out there who find this helpful- like I did!

  1. My 8 year old will be playing football for the first time soon and I NEVER would have thought of this, but it seems brilliant. Thanks for thinking to post this...I will try it out with him tomorrow! (following from blog hop)http://jennyatdapperhouse.blogspot.com/
