SPECIAL NEEDS

Ages 4 -18

Registration for the Fall League is Now Available!

Our special needs sports ministry is for children ranging from 4 to 18 years old. This is a skills training program to help develop skills in both soccer (fall) & baseball/t-ball (spring). They will participate in soccer in the fall class and baseball in the spring in order to help develop their skills in each of these two sports. Dependent upon the number of buddies/helpers we have register, we always strive to have 1 on 1 instruction between our helpers and the student. It is a well supervised program where we provide much attention to each student! We would love for you to register your child for this coming fall! The registration fee is $40. The class is from 10:00-11:00 am each Saturday.

We will have check-in and child drop off between 9:45-10:00 am each Saturday. Each Saturday we will have various stations set up and each station will teach a different skill. The children will rotate stations throughout the class. The first week for the fall session begins on Saturday, September 8th and the last day is Saturday, October 20th for a total of 7 sessions. This season we will focus on soccer with some super fun tee-ball/kick-ball fun. In addition to our normal lessons we will have an obstacle course for the children to navigate through! We would love to have your family join us this season!! For this upcoming season, if it is raining outside, we will move indoors to ensure that we do not miss any classes! 

We will host a Special Needs Parent meeting on Tuesday, September 4th beginning at 6:00 pm in room FC 204 (2nd floor of the Family Center). This meeting will be especially beneficial for new families to the ministry as we will be able to answer all your questions and provide great information! Please mark this date on your calendars.

Additionally, we are always in need of helpers to help make sure that we have at least a 1:1 ratio between the students and the helpers. Please click on the registration link below if you can help us this spring as one of our class helpers. Thank you so much for considering this!

Colonial Special Needs Sports Ministry will also host a special end of season celebration after the final Saturday of the season.  As a special treat to both players and families we will host the players for fun activities, snacks and games while parents enjoy a couple hours of respite.  It’s our treat to you and your kids and there will be no additional cost. All kids will need to RSVP prior to the event so a 1:1 can be assigned to each participant.  Please RSVP simply by emailing Peter Bonner at pbonner@colonial.org to let him know you intend to be involved in this event.
