RUFL Football

The Rivals United Flag Football League was started by a group of committed football fans who wanted to ensure all children, including kids with disabilities, would have the opportunity to play the game. Each child playing RUFL gets a chance to play quarterback, kicker, offense and defense. The program is designed to ensure each child experiences success and being part of a team. The RUFL Football Summer Camp is an opportunity for your child, ages 7-17, learn more detailed fundamentals of football, interact and work within a team and have fun. The dates for this year’s camp will be July 10-12 from 9 a.m. to 12. The camp will be held at the UCA Pepsi Center in Conway.  Community Connections does charge a $40.00 camp fee but assistance is available if needed. Any questions please contact Derek Moser at Derek_moser@pedsplustherapy.com
