This is the information for the Young Athletes through Special Olympics training that we will have at Dawson Coop on June 13, 2019. The training will be from 9 am – 12:00 pm. We can accommodate up to 15 participants for the training. This workshop is appropriate for special education, early elementary, and pre-K teachers.
Young Athletes is an early childhood sports play program for pre-K through 2nd grade children. Children learn basic sports skills like kicking and throwing a ball and playing with others. The program is inclusive so children with and without special needs work together. There is a family component to the program allowing the opportunity for parents and siblings to get involved at home and to connect with the Special Olympics program. The Young Athletes program allows students to practice skills like balance, flexibility, strength and coordination.
