The Young Athletes Program (YAP) is an inclusive program for children ages 2-7 with or without intellectual disabilities. The focus is on fun activities that are important to mental and physical growth. Activities will aid in the development of social and motor skills for children within this age range. This program also helps in bridging the gap between children with and without intellectual disabilities by integrating them at a young age and teaching acceptance for all.

The YAP curriculum provides an outlet for physical activity and socialization in a format that engages strengths, differences, inclusion, and collective accomplishment. Unlike many similar programs, YAP is offered free of charge to all participants.

Fall 2016 YAP will be held on Wednesday evenings from 6:15pm – 7:15pm starting on October 26th. The will be held at the Jewish Community Center located at 236 Charlotte Street, Asheville 28801. The room will be held in the gym on the second floor and there is an elevator available for use.
