Ability Academy

Ability Academy began with a dream of NFL star, Matt McCants. He brought his idea to The Arc, and now we work as a team to provide an opportunity unlike any other in the state.

Football lovers ages 7 and up who have an intellectual or developmental disability will have a chance to participate in a half-day, mini-camp teaching football ability beyond their disability. Participants will have the chance, perhaps for the first time, to raise their football IQ and become a part of the pastime of Saturdays in the South.

They will be exposed to fundamentals such as offense, defense, scoring, and football terms. Volunteer coaches from college teams and the NFL will work on skills basics such as stretching, passing, catching and running drills.

Camp activities will take place in the morning followed by a post-camp team lunch!

$25 camp fee includes camper t-shirt, snacks, drinks, and lunch for camper and caregiver.

*2019 DATE TBD.
