Carolina Panthers Help Bring Football Program to Greenville
The City of Greenville and the Carolina Panthers have teamed up to bring a special football program to town. The Panthers have donated $2,510 to help the Exceptional Community Football League (ECFL) begin play this Fall.
The ECFL will offer the game of football to children and adults who, due to physical, sensory, or other disabilities, need some adaptations in order to play. Players, with the help of football buddies, will throw, catch, run, wheel, and score like a normal football game. The concept is just like the successful Challenger Baseball League offered by the City and should provide a non-competitive, fun, and exciting game for all.
The program will be held on Saturday mornings at Jaycee Park, from September 8th – October 27th. Participants may register at the Drew Steele Center or any Greenville Recreation and Park facility until September 14th.
