Spring Activities (activities are subject to change seasons)
Athletes learn and practice basic bowling skills. It is a sport that athletes can play for a lifetime as part of a group or individually. Athletes are divided into teams according to age and ability. Modifications are made on an individual basis to allow athletes to succeed and learn about the game. Bowling ramps and gutter guards are available for those who need them .
The TASK golf program focuses on skills including grip, swing patterns, driving and putting. Each week athletes alternate between using the driving range, practice putting greens and a miniature golf course. A station approach is used to focus on the skills listed above. Golf clubs and other equipment are provided, although athletes may bring their own.
Participants work on basic tennis skills including serving, volleying, and coordination and modified game play. Rackets will be provided, but participants are welcome to bring their own.
Kickball is a sport that focuses on running, kicking, catching and throwing a typical playground ball. Participants are divided into teams and games are played and modified as needed.
Participants will spend 30 minutes a week learning how to bait a hook, cast a line and hopefully catch some fish!
TASK tee ball, coach pitch and softball league programs focus on learning softball skills. This program is divided into three skill levels. The three programs are modified as needed to promote safety and success. All programs meet for one hour. Teams are chosen according to age and ability level and all players receive a t-shirt that they are asked to wear each week.
This program is for the beginning ballplayer. Athletes work on basic skills such as throwing, catching, fielding, hitting and base running. All ballplayers participate in game situations and hit a ball off of a tee.
This league is designed for the intermediate ballplayer. Athletes continue to work on basic skills, but instead of hitting a ball off of a tee, they hit a ball pitched by a coach.
This program is designed for the more advanced ballplayer. Again, athletes continue to work on the skills of the sport. Players are typically more skilled than coach pitch players and have a greater level of independence in offense and defense.
