    SPORTS PLUS invites you to celebrate the arrival of 2020 with us and turn up the heat on fun and excitement in our indoor gym and sports program. The program will feature a variety of sports, fitness and teamwork activities and games.

     Each class will begin with the full group taking on either our ultimate obstacle course challenge or a specially designed fitness routine. Depending upon the week, participants may run, jump, roll, crawl or practice other skills using a variety of different equipment. Each element of the obstacle courses and the fitness routines has been specifically selected by our staff to teach a different sports skill in a manner that maximizes fun and success for each participant. During each class, the participants will then be broken down into small age and skill appropriate groups where a different sport or set of skills will be emphasized.   Activities may include volleyball, basketball, dodge ball, floor hockey, throwing and catching, relays, scooter racing, kickball and cutting edge fitness, agility and training techniques. Classes will conclude with a specially designed game selected from the sports listed above.

    As always, the SPORTS PLUS winter program will feature unique skill development techniques, highly trained coaches, special education professionals, consistent encouragement and positive reinforcement. Fun, teamwork, social skills and sportsmanship are stressed at all classes. Participant to coach ratios are maintained at no higher than 3 to 1. Participation of typically developing siblings in each class is encouraged to allow siblings to play together and act as role models. The SPORTS PLUS model permits extra help or additional challenge to be provided as needed to participants with a wide variety of skills. The end result is a successful, rewarding and exciting physical and social experience for children and their families

    Classes begin January 26th and 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 info@playsportsplus.org.

    Sports Plus is pleased to invite you to join us for the fun and excitement of our eleventh annual summer camp. Our camp will feature a variety of sports, fitness, and teamwork     activities and games that you have come to know and enjoy in our sports programs. We will combine them with additional sports, dance, music, art, yoga and science activities. On Fridays, there will be a field trip component. Most of all we will have fun while using sports, play, social activities and the arts to learn things that have benefits far beyond our summer camp program.

    Our summer camp will be small and personal. We know your children, teen and young adults, and they know us. Our campers have already experienced our school year programs.  The campers feel comfortable and we work hard to help them to learn, improve their sports and social skills and most importantly have fun! Class sizes do not exceed 12 children. Our camper to paid staff ratio will be no higher than 3 to 1. Numerous experienced volunteers will also be present to assist our paid staff. Many of our Sports Plus coaches will be at all sessions along with special education professionals and experts in other fields. Campers will be placed in age and skill appropriate peer groups.

    Our sports activities will include many of those that you have come to know from our highly successful sports and swim programs and others such as martial arts, yoga, fitness training and volleyball. We will also spend time discussing vocabulary, rules and strategy of each game and good sportsmanship. We will also feature our very popular art, yoga and dance segments. A lunch break and supervised outdoor free play will also be provided each day. We will have exclusive use of the gym and classrooms during our entire camp time.

    As always, Sports Plus will feature unique skill development techniques, highly trained coaches, special education professionals, consistent encouragement, and positive                  reinforcement. Fun, teamwork, social skills and sportsmanship are stressed at all classes.     Participation of typically developing siblings in our camp is encouraged to allow siblings to play together and act as role models.

    On Fridays, we go on a field trip. We will take professional bus transportation to a variety of different activities in the vicinity.  These trips will be determined as we get closer to the dates. But, in the past we have gone bowling, gone to the splash park, gone to a farm to see the animals and learn how to care for them, etc. It's a fun activity that all participants enjoy.
