The Miracle League of CT is proud to be bringing back a hugely popular program that we began last winter – Miracle League KIDS Club. The offering is the Miracle League’s first truly inclusive program. KIDS (Kids Inclusive Diverse Sports) Club is being offered in collaboration with Chapter 126 in Bristol. Chapter 126 is an inclusive sports facility that caters to the needs of people with physical and cognitive challenges.
The fall session of KIDS Club will meet each Saturday beginning in early November for 6 weeks. The winter session will begin in January. Every week will feature a different adapted sport or activity for the participants. What is unique about the program is that children with special needs, who the Miracle League traditionally offers programs to, will be encouraged to invite a typically developing sibling or friend to join us at the club. All participants will play side by side on all activities. It’s a great opportunity for all of the children to get a better understanding of what life is like for their friends, all while having lots of fun. Some possible activities are wheelchair basketball (all children will play in a wheelchair), noodle hockey, obstacle course day, and other sports that will be adapted for all participants. The activities will all be led by Chapter 126 Adapted Sports Program Coordinator Paul Weiland. He will be assisted by volunteers who will be on hand to offer any help that is needed.
Registration fee for each 6 week program will be $30 for each participant. You must register each participant (including siblings and friends). Registration fees include a club t-shirt and end of the year party. As with all Miracle League of CT programs our number one goals is to remove barriers that prohibit anyone from participating, this includes financial barriers. If you would like to participate but are having financial difficulties, please email us to request a fee waiver. All requests will be kept strictly confidential.
