AwA: Changing lives! ~ Ben

I can not say enough of how much this program has meant to us. My 9 year old son, living with Autism, has not been able to take part in any sport event or program. In the past the loss of the instructor’s patience and willingness to take the time to understand my son has really been a tremendous loss of interest in getting involved with sports. Since he has been a part of Athletes with Autism his enthusiasm has gone through the roof. The care and support that we receive as parents is amazing. Just to see my child happy and comfortable in an environment that is set up just for him is more than I can ever ask for. I also want to mention how much I enjoy getting to watch the other participants and their achievements and the helpful advise that I’ve receive from other parents while we’re there has been tremendous. Who better to get advise from then the ones who deal with living with Autism everyday! We cheer for our children that have a brought so much love to our hearts.

Spring Swim 2014 PDF Print E-mail

livtommy 

Athletes with Autism is kicking off the Spring 2014 Swim Session with a "Meet Your Coach at the Pool" night scheduled for Friday, May 16, 2014 at the Matthaei Physical Education Building at Wayne State University. Each athlete and his/her family will be invited to individually scheduled time slots beginning at 5:30PM that evening in order to be oriented to the pool and locker room facilities, as well as, spend a brief period of time in the pool with the coaches.  This time in the pool is invaluable to us, as it will help us get to know each child and assure he/she is enrolled in the session that best addresses his/her individual needs.

Your athlete will be assigned to one of the following groups based on a skill assessment completed at the "Meet Your Coach at the Pool" event.

Dates for the Athletes with Autism Swim Session are Wednesdays, 5/21/14-6/25/14


Group 1 6:30 PM -7:10 PM Water Exploration 


Group 2 7:15PM- 7:55 PM Swim Program 

Here are some basic guidelines the Athletes with Autism coaches will use when determining which swim session is right for your athlete:

Water exploration:
-needs to learn how feel comfortable in the water and to enjoy water safely.
-needs to learn how to float on his/her back & front, enter & exit the pool safely, and submerge his/her face underwater, blow bubbles and move through the water (walking &/or kicking).
-needs to learn how to put on a life-jacket.

Swim Program:
-can or is ready to hold their breath & go underwater.
-can float or glide without support.
-can enter & exit the pool in deep water.
-is ready to learn backstroke &/or front crawl.
-is ready to jump into deep water with a life-jacket on.

See you May 16th at the "Meet Your Coach at the Pool" night.

See you in the pool! :)

January 29th event - as scheduled PDF Print E-mail

What a January! There is on doubt that it is cold, but AwA will host the "Meet Your Coach" event tonight as scheduled. We are looking forward to seeing you at the time that you signed up for when you registered.

The University is open and temperatures will be increasing throughout the day. This event is vitally important to the program because it gives participants an opportunity to get to know eachother. Our coaches get to know your athlete and their skill level so that they can plan for successful sessions moving forward. Your athlete gets to know their coaches so that they see a familular face when the gym is full of athletes and activity. This event sets the foundation for an amazing season and we look forward to seeing you this evening.

See you tonight!
