“TEACH KIDS WITH DISABILITIES THAT THEY CAN BEFORE THEY ARE TOLD THEY CAN NOT……”
The Kennedy Krieger’s Physically Challenged Sports Program is the home of the Bennett Blazers. The program provides therapeutic sports and recreational programs for children, up to the age of 18 or graduated from high school, with varying degrees of physical abilities. The program incorporate opportunities for participants to learn sports with the goal to:
– practice and develop skills independently
– use learned skills during leisure time
– grow socially/emotionally and practice problem solving.
Programs are tailored to the unique needs of each child and family.
Activities are held on a weekly basis on the grounds of the Greenspring Campus of Kennedy Krieger Institute. Off-site programming may include participation in local, regional, national and international athletic competitions. Special activity camps in golf, bicycling and sled hockey are held on campus or at local university/recreational facilities. Activities scheduled for a particular semester may vary and can include both beginner and advanced training.
