Whether you love football, soccer, hockey, basketball, or something else, organized sports are a great way for kids to boost their confidence, exercise and have a blast. But it’s not all fun and games— playing sports also teaches young athletes teamwork, cooperation, leadership and dedication.
For teens who want to hone these social skills, Bittersweet’s Social Living Club offers teens an athletically-minded opportunity to have fun and play soccer with adolescents with autism. Teens will also earn a friend and help provide an open, caring environment with people from various backgrounds.
Teen volunteers, ages 13 to 18, will act as mentors, partnering with adolescents with autism from Bittersweet Farms during Adapted and Facilitated (AF) Soccer practices.
The Wednesday evening practices will be held for six weeks. August 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, and September 7 at Total Sports Complex (10020 S. Compass Dr., Rossford).
Bittersweet is a community that offers many resources for people with autism, hopes this opportunity will help individuals with autism and the community as a whole.
