Special Needs Softball Team (see additional info in below section): "We are looking to start a softball team for boys and girls with special needs of all kinds. This would be geared towards children in grades 1-5. Our hope would be to expose these children to a team sport in which they can work together with other children. We would also introduce these children to the game of softball by practicing skills and eventually playing some recreational low-key softball games. Children would need a buddy (parent, sibling, friend) to stay with them at all times to help give them the best experience possible. Depending on your child's needs, this buddy may or may not need to stay on the field." Practice/”games” (Sunday nights 4-5:30pm) season running approx. May-July. $25 includes t-shirt. Instructed by Sam Howard: Northpoint Teacher who has a Master’s in Elementary Education and license in Autism Spectrum Disorder. She played softball at the U OF M and has many accolades that go with her softball career. She will have help from other elementary teachers and former softball players.
