It is open to individuals who are 8 years old and older with some form of intellectual and/or developmental disability. Athletes should come dressed for participation and can bring a water bottle. Practice schedules will be handed out at these sessions. All participants will need a current physical and signed permission form. These will be available at both sessions.
