Tackle football isn’t for everybody, but the UDS Challenger Football and Cheerleading League is! The Challenger Football and Cheerleading League (CFCL) is the ultimate team sport and the perfect way for people ages 8-21 with disabilities to get some exercise and have fun.
Learning the Game and Reveling in Team Spirit
Along with teaching football and cheerleading fundamentals, CFCL gives you the opportunity to pull together as a team in front of a cheering crowd. The rules are simple – every player participates to their level of achievement, and everybody gets their time in the spotlight. Everybody scores, and everybody wins. When it comes to the Challenger flag football league, it’s truly how you play the game!
