The Opportunity to Play Sports

Here at the YMCA, we believe that kids with disabilities should play sports, too.  TOPS - The Opportunity to Play Sports - is designed so that youth with special needs (cognitive and/or physical disabilites) can experience teambuilding skills, confidence and friendships through sports.

The Hopkins County Family YMCA is looking to implement TOPS this spring with basketball, soccer and t-ball.    Children with physical or mental disabilities face challenges joining a team.  Communities with programs open to this population are hard to come by, and that is why the YMCA is stepping in.  The same camaraderie, self-esteem, sense of belonging and accomplishment that kids receive from being invloved in sports benefits all children.
