Region Inclusive Basketball Camp
2010 Inclusive Region Basketball Camp Information
The National Autism Association of Northwest Indiana is happy to co-host the first ever inclusive region basketball camp! The main focus of this camp will be to ensure that all the kids have fun.
This camp will be for 2 days (4 hours each day) August 14-15th, at the Jean Sheppard Community Center in Hammond. Each player with autism will be partnered with a neurotypical peer and a coach. We will work in small groups on basketball skills such as dribbling, passing, shooting and how to play a basketball game. All coaches working with the kids will receive training on autism.
Each day we will have time for working on basketball skills, breaks, “free time” and a short 10-15 minute game. There will be an activity room setup to allow the kids to take a break from all the action.
Player Requirements: All we ask is that each player be between the ages of 6 and 12 and be able to use the toilet independently. We do not have staff on hand to take care of personal hygiene.
Once we receive your registration form, you will receive a confirmation letter with the schedule for both days. Prior to starting the camp, a waiver will have to be signed. There is no fee for this camp.
If you have any questions regarding this camp, you can contact Coach Reggie Brooks at 219-545-3989 or Lisa Fox at 219-947-0229.
Pre-Registration is required. Download the form here and mail to: NAA-NWI, PO Box 216, Hobart, IN 46342. Deadline for registration is July 30th.
