SPECIAL NEEDS

Ages 4 -18

 

 

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 10:30-11:30 am each Saturday.

We will have check-in and child drop off between 10:15-10:30 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 spring session begins on Saturday, April 7th and the last day is Saturday, May 19th for a total of 7 sessions. For this upcoming season, if it is raining outside, we will move indoors to ensure that we do not miss any classes! 

If you should have any questions, please contact Peter Bonner at pbonner@colonial.org.

Colonial Special Needs Sports Ministry will also host a special end of season celebration on the last weekend 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. The event will be on Friday, October 20th from 6:00-9:00 pm. We look forward to this special end of season celebration and time with your kids and hope you can make plans to enjoy some time to yourselves.
