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

2016 ATC Flag Football

2016 Flag Football Championship

ATC Flag Football Championships were held at St. Vincent - St. Mary John Cistone field. Both games went down to the final series before deciding the victors.

In the Consolation Finals, the Warriors and Minutemen battled back and forth with five lead changes. It took the Minutemen the last series to take the lead and the win 25-21. 

In the Championship game, the number one seeded Knights jumped out in front 14-0 before the Irish were able to get on the board. The Irish gave up an interception that was returned for a touchdown giving the Knights a 20-7 lead. However, the Irish came back on the ground to tie the score at 20-20. With less than 6 minutes to go in the game, the Knights found a receiver wide open on deep route to take back the lead 26-20. The Irish then mounted a 8 play 30 yard drive that ended with a 2 yard touchdown run to tie the game. On the extra point attempt, the quarterback scrabbled to find an open receiver. Collen of the Irish made the conversion to give the Irish a 27-26 lead.

With less than 30 seconds left in the game, the Knights moved down to the Irish 7 yard line where an attempted go ahead pass fell incomplete. However, a defensive penalty gave the Knights one last play with no time left on the clock. Thanks to the pressure of Andrea of the Irish, the quarterback couldn't find an open receiver and the ball fell incomplete. The Irish ended up the champions.
