2023/24 SYC Challenger Basketball (Special Needs)

The Challenger League provides an oasis where everyone is a valid player, and parents who often
feel isolated can network and find comfort in each other's company. Playing in a league can help
kids gain self esteem, independence and form friendships with other kids.

This is a basketball program designed for children ages 4 - 21 (who are still in school) with Special Needs who live with
physical or mental challenges. This is a league designed for those children to participate in a sports environment
structured for their success.

Teams will be split according to size / age, and the rules are more laid back than in a typical game of
soccer. The Challenger League's aim is for participants to have fun while learning the game of
soccer. Players will work on skill building which provides an essential opportunity for kids to develop
stronger emotional and social skills while working as a team.

Challenger basketball stresses participation not competition. Our volunteers will provide encouragement direction and
assistance to the players, but parents are always allowed to help their own child.
Registration is $25 per participant. Season starts in January and ends in March.
