Young Athletes

Saturday (11/23/19)

Location: McLoughlin Middle School
2803 N. Road 88, Pasco, WA

Come join the movement and see what Special Olympics Young Athletes is all about!
All children ages 2-7 
are invited to participate in the FREE
Young Athletes Experience during Fall Games.

Young AthletesTM (YA) is an inclusive sports program for children 2 -7 with and without intellectual disabilities. It’s comprised of research based activities that build social and motor skills while engaging young children of all abilities. Studies have shown that 7 months of motor skill development is possible after just one eight week program. The program is even aligned with state PE standards!

The day begins with an experience which includes rotations through activities from the eight week Young
Athletes program. Following the experience, the My First Sport Experience introduces children to the world
of Special Olympics competition, when children participate in an informal bowling game. Each child will
receive a certificate for participating. Complete the interest/registration form here:
