We are excited to share that the Special Olympics club at UMass Amherst will be hosting 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 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. The sports they will focus on for this spring will be soccer and track and field.
The meeting details for both age groups can be referenced below:
Dates: Sunday Mornings – March 26, April 2, April 23, April 30, May 7
