Want to volunteer? 

While it is helpful to have some experience with children that have disabilities it is not a prerequisite. The teams/groups are coached and administered in much the same way as any recreational team.  Contact Debbie Parks at debbiecparks@gmail.com or call (678) 860-5981 to volunteer.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: All children with Down Syndrome must have atlanto-axial series xray completed and results reviewed prior to first practice.

There are many of young athletes with disabilities around us who are looking for an opportunity to play. These children are already in our programs … they are sitting on our sideline benches and chairs watching their siblings play.  United FA wants to give them a chance to play too.
