Young Athletes is an 8-session program that provides a chance for children (ages 2 to 7 years old) with and without special needs to come together and work on pre-sport skills like jumping, balancing, throwing, and catching. Volunteers (Middle Schoolers with a guardian, High Schoolers, and Adults) will help run our games and serve as ambassadors for the Young Athletes Program. Volunteers can sign up for as many or as few sessions as they’d like. Have a club or a group of friends looking to get involved? Sign up as a volunteer organization.
