Benefits of Football

Football is a particularly appropriate sport for individuals with intellectual disability.
Football:

  • Involves all of the participants constantly;
  • Is easy to teach and immediately rewarding to play;
  • Allows relatively rapid initial improvement in skills and basic game understanding;
  • Is a great conditioning activity.
