Flag Football Skills Events Offered in Illinois

Join us for a fun filled day of safe and social distanced activity!
The Glenwood Titans will be on site to run each station. We will be challenging you to a Punt Pass and Kick competition, 40yrd dash, throwing, catching and flag pulling! Never played before? That’s okay – we will have a training station for you and your coach to learn the rules of Special Olympics Flag Football. Hone in on your skills and learn from some local athletes. A to-go lunch will be provided!
We will be using the open green space located north of the parking lot on the east side of the Glenwood Intermediate field.
Masks must be worn: at tournament central, team staging areas, entering the facility to use the restrooms, in the restrooms, staging areas, during the competition and at any time or place when social distancing is not an option. Special Olympics will not be providing masks. Athletes and coaches must bring their own.
To make sure we abide by the 50 person maximum set by the IDPH, parents and spectators are unfortunately not allowed to attend and only registered athletes, coaches and partners are allowed at the event. It is very important you relay to all parents and guardians the importance of only allowing registered persons into the event.
Special Olympics Illinois is committed to providing the best athlete, volunteer, coach and supporter environment possible. While we are excited to resume in-person events, the health and well-being of our constituents remains our top priority. All of our in-person events follow the COVID-19 recommended IDPH and CDC guidelines.
