Join us in continuing to grow the first Young Athletes program in Wayne County! Special Olympics Young Athletes™ is a sport and play program for children with and without intellectual disabilities. Young Athletes introduces basic sport skills, like running, kicking and throwing. Each week athletes focus on the basic skill designated towards that week in a fun atmosphere. Children learn how to play with others and develop important skills for learning. The skills they learn and develop through will help them once they are old enough to participate in unified sports through Special Olympics.
Enrollment is FREE for each child. Call Leisure Services at 313-387-2650 for more information on registering.
