Flag football is both a traditional sport for athletes with intellectual disabilities (ID) only and a unified sport, which invites competitors with and without ID to play America’s favorite game.


SOWI has adopted a four (4) phased approach to return to activities. As of August 1, 2020, we are in Phase 1 – Small Group Activities:

  • Shelter in place is lifted; restriction on size of mass gatherings (10 people)
  • Activities may resume if they adhere to strict physical distancing and sanitation protocols
  • No direct or indirect contact (e.g. through a ball in the hand) should take place
  • Training activities may include only be pre-approved SOWI COVID-19 sports

Flag Football Skills is a SOWI COVID-19 approved sports for Phase 1 and 2. For more information, including rules and training plans, visit our Return to Play page.
