RUFL Football

The Rivals United Flag Football League was started by a group of committed football fans who wanted to ensure all children, including kids with disabilities, would have the opportunity to play the game. Each child playing RUFL gets a chance to play quarterback, kicker, offense and defense. The program is designed to ensure each child experiences success and being part of a team. The RUFL Football Summer Camp is an opportunity for your child, ages 7-17, learn more detailed fundamentals of football, interact and work within a team and have fun. The dates for this year’s camp will be July 10-12 from 9 a.m. to 12. The camp will be held at the UCA Pepsi Center in Conway.  Community Connections does charge a $40.00 camp fee but assistance is available if needed. Any questions please contact Derek Moser at Derek_moser@pedsplustherapy.com


The First Tee Golf

Community Connections partnered with The First Tee of Central Arkansas in 2011 to provide a golf program for children ages 7-17 with special needs. The purpose of the golf program is to teach our kids the game of golf in a positive, encouraging environment. The golfers spend time each day in the classroom learning the rules and etiquette of golf then take their skills onto the course to put the learning into action. All of the golfers are taught by the instructors at The First Tee and assisted by the Community Connections staff. The First Tee charges a nominal fee for the instructors and equipment but gives a generous discount to all Community Connections kids.

Golf is offered during the summer and is set up in week long camps.  Camps will be held at different times during the summer months at The First Tee of Central Arkansas location in Little Rock. All golf clubs, golf balls, golf bags and any other golf equipment are provided by The First Tee.

Summer 2012 Dates: June 22, July 6, July 20, August 3 and August 17.
