We are excited to share that the Special Olympics club at Merrimack College will be hosting another Level 1 and 2 Young Athletes program on campus this winter 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 on sport specific skill development and early game play concepts. They will be reviewing basketball skills the first three weeks and soccer skills the final two weeks.
The meeting details for both age groups can be referenced below:
Dates: Sunday Mornings – March 5th, 12th, 26th and April 2nd
Level 1 group (ages 2-6) will meet from 10:00am – 10:45am
Level 2 group (ages 6-12) will meet from 11:00am – 11:45am
Location: Sakowich Center – 315 Turnpike St. North Andover, MA 01845
Merrimack College will also be requiring an additional COVID Attestation form for guests to complete before coming to campus. That form can be accessed here. We will also need to capture a weekly RSVP from families, through a Google Form. The college is asking for families to provide vaccination status on that form. We will send out the Google form in our weekly email reminders.
If you’d like to participate, please complete the registration form below. We will be able to accommodate the first 20 registrations received for each age group, and then start a wait list from there.
