Cougar Football Teams Up with LETMESAIL
The College of the Canyons football team and LETMESAIL (Lifestyle Enrichment Through Meaningful Exercise, Social Activity and Independent Living) announced the co-sponsorship of the first SNAP (Special Needs Athletes and Peers) Flag Football League Tournament, which will be held at Cougar Stadium from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 21.
Admission to the tournament is free and open to the public. A total of eight teams from our area and the San Diego area will participate. A one-hour clinic will be conducted for the LETMESAIL members with the Cougar coaching staff and players that will focus on basic football skills.
"I think this will be a great experience for our staff and players as we give back to the community that gives us so much support," said College of the Canyons head football coach Garett Tujague. "College of the Canyons is Santa Clarita's college, and as a member of this community it is always good to contribute and show support for other organizations. SNAP is doing wonderful things, and Cougar football is honored that we can be a part of that."
LETMESAIL, a lifestyle enrichment program for differently abled individuals with disabilities, in conjunction with the Canyon Country Outlaws of the Pacific Youth Football League foster mentor relationships with the senior Outlaw teams and members of the LETMESAIL program, resulting in the SNAP program. SNAP was started in July 2007.
