At the 2010 National Games in Nebraska, Flag Football was held as a demonstration sport. In 2014 USA Games Flag Football was one of the 12 sports offered. Athlete training takes place in late spring and throughout the summer.

Flag football is offered at Special Olympics PA – Philadelphia as a Unified Sport. Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding. In Unified Sports, teams are made up of people of similar age and ability. That makes practices more fun and games more challenging and exciting for all. Having sport in common is just one more way that preconceptions and false ideas are swept away. 

Training Schedule

Virtual Flag Football practice is on Mondays from 5:00 pm – 5:45 pm.

If you would like to get involved with Flag Football, please contact Michelle Cordell.
