Adapted Programs Methodology
Programs include 8 popular sports:
soccer, hockey, baseball, basketball, football, tennis, volleyball, and golf.
Sportball participants learn, refine, rehearse, and repeat sport skills in a positive, supportive and non-competitive environment. Coaches break down each skill into building blocks and use simple and effective key words to give instruction.
Sportball is not solely about learning to play a sport with skill. It’s also about building self-esteem, enhancing social and gross motor skills, developing body and sensory awareness, and setting the stage for a healthy active lifestyle.
What are the Goals of the Adapted Program?
- Development and strengthening of social skills
- Improvement in sport skills and fitness
- Ability to cooperate in play
- Enhanced body awareness
- Increased focus and attention
- Heightened confidence and self-esteem
How will the Classes be Organized?
Classes will consist of participants who share similar needs. The age ranges will vary while the ability levels will be similar. This will allow the coach to adjust the pace of instruction to focus on the needs of each participant.
Sportball offers two different types of Adapted Programs:
- A drop-off program for independent participants who require minimal assistance when performing activities.
- Programs in which parents or caregivers accompany participants to ensure a productive and positive outcome.
Coaches and Coaching Ratios
A specially-trained Sportball coach will teach each class. Our coaches will guide participants and support them through the skills of eight different sports. Classes will run with a minimum and maximum number of participants in order to ensure the quality and integrity of the program.
Registration is open for the Adapted Sportball programs. Please contact our office if you wish to set up a program for a group of participants. Programs run for sessions of 8-14 weeks.
