The Young Athletes Program (YAP) is an inclusive early childhood sports play program that includes games, songs and other fun physical activities for young children. YAP unites children with and without disabilities to play together as they practice and engage in basic sports skills. Young Athletes learn basic sports skills to help prepare them to participate in traditional sports programs when they are older, such as those offered by the Village of Key Biscayne and Special Olympics. Participants also develop motor, social, language and cognitive skills that are important for success in life beyond the athletic arena. Motor development activities improve balance, flexibility, strength and coordination as they practice their sports skills.
PARENTS/CAREGIVERS MUST BE ABLE TO STAY AND PARTICIPATE WITH THEIR CHILDREN.
This program is FREE OF CHARGE for Key Biscayne residents. Space is limited!
Pre-registration at the Front Desk is required. Participants must be able to commit to the entire session.
REGISTRATION DATE: TBA
