Adapted Football League

Adapted Football League

Established in 2011 as the first competitive adapted football program in Ohio, the Adapted Football League gives children and adults with disabilities the opportunity to participate in an organized, competitive and developmental sport that would otherwise be unavailable to them. The primary focus for each player includes (1) skill development, (2) social interaction and (3) physical exercise. The league is organized into two divisions – one for able-bodied players and another for players using wheelchairs.

Browns Give Back is a proud supporter of the Adapted Football League, which serves over 120 athletes each year. Below are highlights from the League's seventh season, as the Browns hosted Friday Night Lights and All-Star Games.

The Adapted Football League began its 8th season in May 2018. Visit the Achievement Centers for Children website below to learn more about registering to be an athlete or volunteering with the league.
