Jeffco students with disabilities step up to the plate

Posted

A select group of athletes from 15 Jefferson County schools gathered at the Gold Crown Field House in Lakewood, to play some softball, Adapted Athletics style.

The April 18 event was the latest sports day put on by Adapted Athletics, a program to provide Jeffco students with disabilities the same opportunity as other students to enjoy the benefits of a middle school or high school sports program — becoming active members in society who lead healthy lifestyles.

Students that participate in the program range in mental disabilities from autism and social/emotional needs to physical disabilities that limit mobility. Some compete in wheelchairs.

The next and final sporting day for the program is Track and Field scheduled for May 4, at Jeffco Stadium.
