SPECIAL NEEDS

Ages 4 -18

Registration for the Spring League is Now Open!

 

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 soccer, baseball and a brand new sport - floor hockey! Your children will participate in these sports in order to help develop their skills. 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 spring! 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, March 30th and the last day is Saturday, May 11th for a total of 6 sessions. We will have a parent/coaches orientation meeting for our new families just prior to our first class on Saturday, March 30th 2019 beginning at 10:00 am out on the field in the Courtyard where the class will take place. We hope to see you there!

Colonial Special Needs Sports Ministry will also host a special end of season celebration the Friday following the final Saturday of the season.  This parent respite will take place on Friday, May 17th from 6:30 - 8:30 pm. As a special treat to both players and families we will host the players for fun activities, obstacle course, 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 no later than Wednesday, May 15th. 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! 

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!
