Flag-football is part of Special Olympics Minnesota Unified Sports, which combines athletes with and without disabilities on the same team. By participating together, athletes and partners improve their physical fitness, sharpen their skills, challenge the competition and overcome prejudices about intellectual disabilities. The Flag Football season runs from August to mid October.
