Flag Football & Cheer for Children with Developmental Disabilities
AMERICAN YOUTH FOOTBALL is proud to support teams with special needs
“We find a way for every body to play”
American Youth Football is an all inclusive program developed to foster a confidence and sense of self-worth that extends beyond the gridiron and into the school, family and community. “Youth with cognitive and physical disabilities are given the opportunity to transform their disabilities into abilities and achievements. Players learn about the health benefits and the value of regular exercise in order to become stronger and healthier. Children build a network of friends, support, and trust. No scores will be kept, however it is still a fun competitive environment.”
Special Needs is defined as any child whose intellectual or physical disability has impaired their skills and overall intelligence in areas such as language, cognition, social skills and motor skills. The purpose of this program is to offer the opportunity for youth with disabilities to learn the meaning of hard work, sportsmanship, teamwork and leadership. AYF believes strongly to help promote lifelong habits of wholesome exercise in order to keep our youth healthy. Ultimately, these teams are developed to Have Fun! NO scores will be recorded, it is non competitive with no winners and no losers.
