All-Star Training Club (ATC) was established to provide an integrated sports program for individuals with or without disabilities where everyone, regardless of ability, is encouraged to participate on the field of athletic competition. ATC is a sanctioned Special Olympics organization and is the only program in a five-county area that offers such a unique approach to athletics where everyone is given the opportunity to become a rising star.

In early 2014, All-Star Training Club became the newest member of the United Disability Services (UDS) family. In his new role, ATC Founder Dan Lancianese will continue to work closely with athletes, families and volunteers to promote the benefits of fun and fitness for everyone.

United Disability Services is celebrating 65 years of enhancing the lives of people with disabilities by providing opportunities for full participation in the community. For more information about any of our other programs and services visit us at www.udsakron.org.

2014 ATC Flag Football



Flag Football Championship 

The ATC Flag Football championships proved to be very exciting and entertaining. In the consolation finals, it was the Knights holding off the Griffins by the score of 49-46 to take the 3rd place spot. The Knights had a 29-12 lead at one point and looked to be putting the game away with another go ahead score when a pass got picked off in the end zone by Ryan who then went 49 yards the other way setting up a score for the Griffins to trim the lead to 3 points. Unfortunately for the Griffins they could not stop the Knights ground game.

In the Championship game, the Irish and Warrriors swapped the lead multiple times before Carl and Dustin both put together long runs that gave the Irish a slim 48-46 lead. The Irish then held the Warriors on downs. With 20 seconds left in the game, Colleen of the Irish broke off a 35 yard run for a score to secure the lead and the win 54-46.

The UDS All-Star Training Club would like to thank all of the coaches, and volunteers from Archbishop Hoban, Walsh Jesuit and St. Vincent - St. Mary for all of the contributions to making this the best season we have had.
