Unified Flag Football | Recreational Services

What is Unified Flag Football?
The University of Iowa Intramural Sports has partnered with Special Olympics Iowa to offer Unified Flag Football for the first time ever on our campus! In Unified Flag Football, Special Olympics athletes will be teamed up with traditional participants, called partners. Each team will have five Special Olympics athletes/REACH students, and five partners. These teams will compete against one another in our Unified Flag Football league.

When is Unified Flag Football?
Our Unified Flag Football league will play on Wednesday nights at 6:45 PM at the Hawkeye Recreation Fields, beginning on Wednesday, September 20. Each team will play three regular season games. All four teams will make the playoffs, which will begin on Wednesday, October 11 (weather pending). The two semifinal winners will play in the Unified Flag Football championship on Wednesday, October 18 (weather pending).

How Do I Get Registered?
We are still looking for partners to play on teams with Special Olympics/REACH athletes. If you are interested, email us at intramural-sports@uiowa.edu.
