YMCA Adaptive Sports

The Monroe County YMCA is offering two adaptive programs in volleyball and basketball for persons with disabilities. Adapted basketball will be offered on Thursdays starting on February 25 through April 15, 2010 and will focus on skill development, understanding of game strategies, and teamwork. A combined volleyball and basketball class will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting February 23 through April 15. Skill development, understanding of game strategies, and teamwork will be the primary focus.

For more information, contact Kevin Thompson at the YMCA at (812) 332-5555.
