Format

The League will be Co-Ed.    Teams will be constructed of athletes (persons with physical or intellectual disabilities) and partners (ASU student volunteers).  Games will be 5 on 5 with at least 3 of the 5 players having a disability.

If you have concerns about your child’s ability to participate, or if you feel like your child would be a good fit but doesn’t meet the age range as described, please let us know. Our goal is to adapt play to allow any athlete to participate in a meaningful way.  

This program is designed to teach players the fundamentals of the game and how to work as a team. Rules will be adapted as needed to accommodate the strengths and limitations of the children on each team and will be fluid.  We will loosely be following the Special Olympics Flag Football Rules throughout the season.

Following the season we will be putting together at least one team to participate in the Special Olympics Tournament that your participant may be eligible for.

What's Included?

Our season runs 8 weeks long.   Week 1 will be a skills assessment day where we will try to pair participants onto teams in which everyone is able to make a meaningful contribution.  Sessions during weeks 2-7 will consist of 45 minutes of skills development, and 45 minutes of playing games.   Week 8 will be the “Grand Finale,” and be all games.

Participants will be supplied with equipment and jerseys needed to play the game.  The jerseys will be yours to keep.  Your registration fee also covers field/facility rental, and insurance.  There are no hidden costs.  Kids just need to wear shoes appropriate for a grass field (sneakers or non-metal cleats).

Following the season we will have a celebration party where each child is honored for their unique contributions.
