This will be LEEP’s sixth year participating in Special Olympics MN Flag Football program. This is a non-contact sport and is open to anyone over the age of 8.

The Unified Flag Football season combines athletes with and without disabilities to compete on the same team. By participating together, athletes and Unified Partners improve their physical fitness, sharpen their skills, challenge the competition, and overcome prejudices about intellectual disabilities. We will engage in football specific drills, developing plays, and strengthening teamwork throughout the entire season!

No matter what your skill level is, LEEP will help you improve throughout the football season.
