TEAM Flyers

The National Ability Center’s Team Flyers provides individuals with intellectual disabilities the opportunity to participate in National Ability Center competitions and Special Olympics Utah aquatics. Team Flyers is a holistic approach to competition where team members not only learn about specific sport based skills, but they will also work on teambuilding, learn about health and nutrition, goal setting, and other social life skills.

 Currently Team Flyers hosts bi-weekly practices in winter sports (ski & snowboard), cycling, and aquatics during their respective seasons. In the off season, the team meets once a month, where team members will have the opportunity for more team building and social interactions.
