MaxInMotion Sponsors for the 3rd Year

Through the generous support of the MaxInMotion Foundation, the Youth Adaptive Sports Clinics will be offered at the Sports and Fitness Center July – December 2015. This is the third year the clinics have introduced adaptive sports to local youth.

New in 2015, SpoFit is adding wheelchair tennis to the sports lineup of power soccer and wheelchair basketball. Tennis will begin indoors at the Sports and Fitness Center and graduate to the courts in November.

One Saturday of every month the clinics will be offered on the Sports and Fitness Center courts. Power soccer will be on one court, and the second court will offer wheelchair tennis or wheelchair basketball (rotating monthly). Sports will be coached by local sports teams and coaches.

In November, athletes participating in wheelchair tennis will also receive a sponsored registration to the Desert Open Wheelchair Camp and Tournament being held at Scottsdale Ranch Park. These athletes will have the chance to test their newly-learned skills on the court!

These clinics are available to youth and their families to participate either as new or experienced athletes. The Sports and Fitness Center has a range of sports wheelchairs for youth to use during the clinics. These clinics are fully sponsored for members and non-members by MaxInMotion®; coaching, equipment and lunch will be provided to those who register. Visit www.spofit.org for more information and to register for the clinics.

“We have great coaches for all three sports. Our kids will have fun while learning essential skills.” Kelsey Brocken, Lead Recreation Therapist
