We are excited to share that the Special Olympics club at UMass Amherst will be hosting a Level 1 & 2 Young Athletes program this fall season!
The Level 1 class will be for children ages 2-6 with and without intellectual disabilities, focusing on fun activities that aid in the development of motor skills through running, jumping, balancing, throwing, kicking, catching and more! Specific activities covered during a Level 1 class can be referenced in the Young Athletes Activity Guide.
The Level 2 class will be offered for children ages 6-12, and will focus more sport specific skill development and early game play concepts. They will be reviewing track & field the first three weeks and soccer skills the final three weeks.
