What you are doing by slowing the ballcarrier down is giving yourself more time to swarm and have chances to pulll flags.

Good suggestions from the others above. Remind them constantly to focus on the belt, not the head, legs or feet of the RB. Another thing that helped us over the years is provide an incentive for flag pulls. Try going to a few local pizza shops and ask them if they'll give you some coupons for a slice or two of pizza. They win b/c the family comes in with the coupon and if your spread that around the pizza place gets more biz. We'd have a parent track the flag pulls and hand out the certs for most flag pulls in a game.

I alway stress - get in front of the runner FIRST. Then pull the flag. Getting in their way makes them slow down or even stop. Don't whiff as they run by. Mirror their position on the field and when they slow/stop, get that flag.

We also found one of the most important factors is getting in front of the runner and using both hands. We'll even teach our kids to attempt to pull both flags. This gives them a better chance to get a flag. There is a good article here on pulling flags - how to pull a flag in flag football.
