Moser won’t flag in making kids good

This Saturday marks the return of
flag football for Cayman’s youth.

Camana Bay is slated to
be a buzz of activity as boys and girls aged seven to 17 take the field from
9am until roughly 3pm.

One person slated to be on hand for
the second annual The Security Centre Youth Flag Football League is Chris
Moser.

The proud Canadian is slated to man
the sidelines as a team coach, a role he played in last year’s inaugural
league.

As the avid sportsman states it’s a
task he’s more than ready to tackle.

“I’m very excited about the return
of the league,” Moser said. “For me it lives out my boyhood dream. Only playing
in the men’s league tops it because I think I’m 15 when I go out there to play.

“Technically I’m the
marketing/public relations coordinator for the youth league. But I’ll be out
there as a coach, probably in the 12U division again. Hopefully I can coach the
Packers a second year.”

The local hockey player and coach
is quite familiar with local flag football having played for the PWC Ironmen in
the men’s league for a few seasons.

In fact, as he states, many of his
compatriots are expected to be involved in this year’s youth league.

“Like last year we will have a lot
of Cayman Islands Flag Football Association members help out,” Moser said.
“Most will be coaches or referees. The women are also getting involved through
coaching and serving refreshments.

“The league continues to get a
tremendous response from association members like it should. We all hope the
kids can be groomed and pushed into the adult leagues to keep the sport
growing.”

This year’s league is slated to run
until late April. Games are expected to be an hour long and youngsters will
have to cover a CI$10 player fee.

As Moser states there is already
plenty of excitement regarding the league’s return.

“I’ve already had kids approach me
asking when they can play. Based on the responses so far I’m sure we’ll have to
add two more teams in the older division.

“The reality is they need to be
active and burn off their excess energy. It’s all a matter of keeping it fun
for them.”
