“It’s awesome to see how far my son comes each season. He starts off nervous and shy, but by the end, he’s made a connection with several coaches and other kids and really opens up and participates. He just has more confidence.” – parent of Adapted Football player
Our Achievement Centers for Children Cleveland Browns Adapted Football League helps develop players’ skills based on their abilities, while enjoying sports with their friends. A large group of dedicated volunteers give “their” player individualized attention, guidance, and encouragement. Adapted football is played as a modification of flag football and may have adaptations in the equipment and rules to be inclusive and offer meaningful experiences for all. Teams are organized into broad groups based on disabilities which allow players to compete against other players with their same skill level.
Our adapted football league consists of two divisions for co-ed youth 7 years and older with physical limitations and/or cognitive/developmental delays. Players compete against individuals of similar skill level.
Inclement Weather Notifications: Parents & Fans, please check your emails one hour before each scheduled practice or game, check our Facebook Adapted Sports page and/or email Ryan at Ryan.Holesko@AchievementCtrs.org
