Backyard Sports Cares

UPDATED: April 12, 2020

Backyard Sports Cares' Plus Programs offer special needs children, ages 5-15, a safe and appropriately competitive program to learn and enjoy team sports. The activities focus on athletic development skills while stressing the proper behaviors required for optimal group cooperation. These programs include both a "teen league" for participants ages 13 and up, as well as a larger group session for participants ages 6 and up. Both programs are staffed by teaching professionals as well as Middle School and High School peer mentors who volunteer and work 1 to 1 with each athlete as they follow along with the lead instructor. All programs are held in the main gym at Purchase College, 10:00 - 10:45 AM for our teen league (ages 13 and up) and 11:00 to 11:45 AM for our second group sessions (ages 6 and up). Our programs are run seasonally and include soccer, tennis, basketball, Gaga and more.
