SPORT SEASON
August - October

Flag Football is a new sport to Special Olympics Nevada.  It is fast becoming one of the most popular sports.  Flag Football  consists of unified team play and individual skills competition.  Unified teams bring athletes with and without intellectual disabilities together on the same team.  Individual Skills competition is for those athletes who are learning the basic skills of the game. 

Because this is a new sport to SONV, certification training is still being developed.  For certification information for this sport, please contact your area sports manager.

We believe it is important for our coaches to receive certification training in order to provide them with the tools needed to help our athletes have a positive sport experience.  By taking the online certification training, coaches will learn best practices when approaching sports training with our athletes. Certification is required for certain coaching situations and recommended for all coaches.   Please also make sure to check out the SONC/SONV Rules for Flag Football (below).
