SPORTS PLUS is a non-profit organization that offers a uniquely structured soccer program for verbal children able to follow simple directions between the ages of 5 and 21 with mild to moderate autistic spectrum disorders, ADD/ADHD and other developmental disabilities. The SPORTS PLUS soccer program is designed for children whose capabilities fit between existing mainstream soccer programs and adaptive soccer programs.
The SPORTS PLUS soccer program features unique skill development techniques, highly trained coaches, special education professionals and parent and sibling involvement.
Teamwork, social skills and sportsmanship are stressed at all classes. Each class finishes with a game designed to be enjoyable and successful for all participants. Player to coach ratios are maintained at no higher than 3 to 1. The same coaches are present at all sessions to create a consistency that encourages a connection between players and coaches. The program
encourages the participation of typically developing siblings in each class to allow siblings to play together and act as role models. The SPORTS PLUS model permits challenges to be provided to players with a wide variety of skills. The end result is a successful, rewarding and exciting physical and social experience for children and their families.
Class space is limited so you are encouraged to register immediately. If you have any questions or need more information you may contact the SPORTS PLUS program at (301)452-3781 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No Classes on April 20th due to the holiday.
Thanks to funding provided by a grant from the John & Maureen Hendricks Charitable Foundation, all sessions will be held at the Maryland SoccerPlex in Boyds, MD.
