Young Athletes Curriculum

Powerlifting 1.jpg
Young Athletes is a unique sport and play program for children ages 2 to 7 with and without intellectual disabilities. Our focus is on fun activities that are important to mental and physical growth.

Children enjoy games and activities that develop motor skills like balance, flexibility, strength and coordination. In fact, in a recent study, children with developmental delays who participated in a structured 8-week Young Athletes program showed significantly more motor development than those who did not. Not only that, but their teachers and parents also reported improved confidence, language skills and social skills. After participating, involved families shared that they played more together at home and in the community.

Here's how it works.

  1. Complete this Interest Form to learn more about how you can launch an inclusive Young Athletes program at your school.
  2. Decide when to launch the 8-week Young Athletes curriculum consisting of three 30-minute lessons each week.
  3. Request free sports equipment to launch Young Athletes at your school.
Together, we can create stronger, healthier and more unified school communities through inclusive fitness, sports and educational programs.
