We are excited to share that the Special Olympics club at UMass Amherst and Special Olympics Massachusetts are partnering together to host a Level 1 & 2 Young Athletes program this spring season!
The Level 1 class will be for children ages 2-7 with and without intellectual disabilities, focusing on fun activities that aid in motor skill development areas such as running, jumping, balancing, kicking, catching, throwing and striking. Specific activities covered 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 on early sport specific training and game play concepts. They will be reviewing track & field and soccer skills.
