The Rye YMCA, in partnership with Backyard Sports Cares, offers children of all abilities (ages Kindergarten through 8th grade) a sports program geared for young athletes with special needs.
The program is led by adult coaches and each participant is paired 1:1 with a middle or high school volunteer. Players will learn sport specific skills using a special education curriculum, in a safe environment giving each athlete an opportunity to succeed at their own individual pace.
In addition to skill acquisition, players will participate in appropriately competitive games and challenges.
