SNAP football today at COC
Bridges to Ability Foundation is holding its fifth annual football and cheer tournament at College of the Canyons' Cougar Stadium from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. today. The event, called SNAP (Special Needs Athletes & Peers) is a unique brand of flag football that promotes relationships between special needs athletes and their peers through competitive, non-contact flag football. In SNAP flag football there is no blocking, no tackling, no contact, just fun. The SNAP program emphasizes diversity and teamwork. Peer athletes from Canyon High's and College of the Canyons' football team participate in the event. Members of the Canyon High cheerleading squad also provide help to SNAP Cheerleading. Volunteers are encouraged and welcome to come on board as coaches and mentors. To learn more about Bridges, SNAP flag football or our other social, recreational and educational programs, visit or contact Bridges Program Director Chris Apsay at (661) 702-8555.
