YOUTH ATHLETE PROGRAM
Over the years, families of children who are too young to compete looked for avenues to join the movement. Thanks to the Young Athlete Program, we are now able to include our Future Stars of Wyoming in a lifetime of sports training and friendships across the state.
Children ages 2 1/2 to 7 enjoy games and activities that develop motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Young Athletes is an early introduction to sports and to the world of Special Olympics. The children learn new things, play and have lots of fun!
“Our infant program loves to give our families the YA kits when their child turns 2. The kits contain materials that address areas of concerns ranging from gross and fine motor skills, language development, following directions, social emotional development, sensory processing deficits and problem solving skills. Once the families sign a consent form the kits are theirs to keep and use. CDC hosts a YA Demo Day in the fall and spring where the children can get together to show off their skills and have fun.” ~Kelly Dailey BS, ECI, Child Development Center, Casper WY
