MaxInMotion and SpoFit are teaming up to host a series of youth adaptive sports clinics this summer. There will be opportunities for youths to try out wheelchair basketball and power soccer. Admission is FREE; all you need to do is register below. Playing sports is an important part of growing up. MaxInMotion and SpoFit believe everyone should get to play, regardless of ability.
The MaxInMotion® foundation was established in 2011 to honor a very special and promising young athlete, Max Shacknai, who lost his life tragically earlier that year. Max embodied all of the characteristics sought in young athletes and had a great passion for all sports and team participation.
