Flag Football State Games

After weeks of practice, and regional games at the end of September, the Special Olympics Unified Flag Football season is coming to an end. The State Games are taking place this weekend in Woodbury, at the HealthEast Sports Complex. This should be a great time for all of the athletes, coaches, and unified partners.

Flag football is a Unified Sport, which means that those with Intellectual Disabilities compete with unified partners, those who do not have any Intellectual Disabilities. This sport exemplifies inclusion for all, and anyone at any level can learn to play and compete.

Owatonna Area Special Olympics has 4 teams that will be competing, Black, Silver, Red, and Blue. All 4 teams have Unified Partners, and all play at different levels. We are wishing them all the best of luck as they are competing all weekend long, with each team playing at least 3 games.

We have been involved in Special Olympics for over 4 years now, and every year, with every sport, it just keeps getting better. I enjoy my time as a coach, and the friendships I have made with the other coaches, athletes, and unified partners.

If you want to get involved, check out the Minnesota Special Olympics website, and follow them on Facebook.  Owatonna also has a Facebook page for our local athletes, you can follow along and get information on upcoming sports seasons, as well as checking out pictures. If you are not able to commit to a full season, there is always a need for volunteers to help with State Games, Regional Games, and Area Games.

Good Luck to all of the Owatonna teams this weekend!
