The Point Pleasant Challenger Flag Football program is a 501 (c) (3) non profit organization.
Our organization believes that the football field is a place where more than just a game is played. We believe it is a place that can make the world a better place. The football field is where we bridge the difference and promote understanding of the people with special needs. Our volunteers learn that people with special needs are not so different that themselves. They develop a understanding of the challenges than their differently abled counterparts face each day. Our challenger athletes have the opportunity to play a team sport, experience a sense of comradery and feel “ The thrill of victory” and “ the agony of defeat”. These special athletes gain physically in terms of coordination and endurance but also more importantly learning to work as a member of a team, developing the ability to wait, focus, to follow directions, to feel as sense of accomplishment. Our hope is that the comradery and understanding developed on the field will continue in the community at large.
The Program has been designed to allow children with all types of special needs, the opportunity to participate in a team sport, that promotes inclusion and provides the support to help those with special needs succeed.
With the help of the Point Pleasant Boro High School football team to provide boys and Girls of all ages the opportunity to play flag football.
