Flag football is offered as a Unified Sport. The season begins in August and concludes in early October with a tournament. Most recently, we practiced Thursday nights in Watertown.
Flag football is a non-contact sport. Games are 2 18 minute halves. 5 players for each team are on the field at a time, 3 Special Olympic athletes and 2 Unified Partners. We use a youth sized football.
Wild West provides a jersey which is returned at the end of the season. SOMN provides a 3-flag belt at the tournaments. All players must wear a mouth guard.
Individual skills competition is available for athletes who need assistance on the field or who are not ready to play 5v5 football. Skills include: throwing for accuracy, throwing for distance, run and catch, and agility and speed.
