Apollo to host flag football camp for special needs players | Sports & Recreation
Apollo High School is planning a flag football camp for special needs players ages 14-22. The camp is free for boys and young men with physical, developmental or intellectual challenges, and is scheduled from 6 to 8 p.m. May 29-31 at the high school, located at 2280 Tamarack Road. All participants will receive a camp T-shirt.
The camp will conclude with an exhibition game that is open to the public. The Apollo/ Independence Bank Eagles Bowl 2013 begins at 6:30 p.m. May 31. Admission is free, but donations will be accepted with proceeds benefiting Puzzle Pieces activity day center for individuals with intellectual disabilities; the Green River Area Down Syndrome Association; Special Olympics; and the local chapter of the Council for Exceptional Children.
The flag football camp – the first of its kind in the area – is sponsored by the Apollo High School Football Program. AHS head football coach Dan Crume, who is overseeing the program, said the camp is designed to provide a positive experience for the participants while introducing the fundamentals of the game of football and creating an opportunity to play.
