UNIFIED FLAG FOOTBALL

Flag football, our newest sport, is a Unified Sport, which means individuals with and without disabilities are on the same team. The Flag Football season runs from August to mid October.

Unified Sports was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.  It’s a sport that’s played in almost every country — in the world! The sport’s success is due to the fact that it can be played by boys, girls, men and women of just about any physical build and ability.

Oh, and it’s lots of fun, too!

Practice begins on Sunday, August 27 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm at the West St. Paul Sports Complex Field.  The RED Team will be back with Ted at the helm.  Many of the same unified partners plan to return, and hopeful many of the same athletes, too!  For the BLUE TEAM most of the athletes are returning plus possibly a few more.  We know Abby is returning but are still waiting to hear from a few others.
