Sport-specific guidelines

  • The qualifying score for each Athlete/Unified Partner is an assessment score.  Please reference the Flag Football Handbook (attached to the registration email or on the Flag Football page) on how to generate a score for each participant.
  • Please complete and submit the Team Information Page (attached to the registration email) for each team within your delegation.  This is an important tool used in the divisioning process.
  • Equipment– Mouth guards are required, but pads are not.  No metal or hard spikes are allowed.  Participants should wear athletic shoes or plastic spikes.  A one-piece, three-flag belt is used for competition, and will be provided.
  • Ball Size – Intermediate (size 4)
  • Roster Size – 5 minimum, 12 maximum.  Rosters provided at the competition will be checked against those provided during registration.
  • Gameplay – 5 vs 5 (3 athletes, 2 partners on the field at all times)
  • Unified Team Sports coach ratios are the same as traditional sports.  Each team still needs one non-playing Level II coach.  Unified Partners are not included in the athlete count for certification ratios.
  • We are now offering an Individual Skills Competition to all Area and State Competitions.
