YOGA specifically adapted to those with special needs!
We still have openings for Hope's Fun Warriors Yoga at the library. There are two sessions which run from 5:15 to 5:45 and from 5:50 to 6:20; it is a mixed group of all ages, sizes, and abilities who welcome buddies, siblings, friends, and parents as well! There will be a short interim in the summer, but if interest is adequate another season will be renewed in the fall.
There is NO COST for these classes. Yoga is not merely a bunch of weird stretches with animal names to watch people awkwardly pose in; yoga helps promote flexibility and strength, mental toughness, peace, calmness, and clarity. It is not "easy" by any means, but very rewarding, and we encourage anyone from any background to give it a try! Ask any of the health professionals volunteering for MSS about their impressions of Yoga and you will be blown away!
Please contact Su at (732) 792 - 7827 with any further questions about the program. All photos where taken by Danielle Pandolfi, are posted under the Photo Album Yoga 2016, and have been posted with permission. Thanks Danielle!
Mother's Day Pictures are up!!!
Feel free to view the Mothers Day (and Fathers, or whatever other family or friends could be there) photos under the appropriately labeled Photo Album. It has been an absolute pleasure photographing you all for the last decade and watching our younger field grow up to older field players, then to volunteers and, in rare cases, coaches. You all have made wonderful, enthusiastic, energetic subjects!
MSS Buddy Ball Celebrates 10 Years!!!
It is absolutely incredible to think that a small gathering of special needs players and their families formed a club of baseball players 10 years ago, but here we are still! We all look forward to having our best season yet!
- If you know of anyone who would be interested in volunteering as a coach or buddy, please direct them to one of the on-field coaches (purple shirts). No free help will be turned away!
- Congratulations to the Mets, Yankees, Pirates, and Red Sox on an awesome parade and first day to the season! Pictures can be found under the normal tab, titled "2016 Baseball Parade."
- Please visit the donors and sponsors page and support them when you can.
- A special thank you is needed to those who have donated ten years of their lives to our programs - no small gift can every be repayment enough for what you have done to benefit the lives of children with special needs within our community! We only look to grow stronger in numbers in the future and be inclusive to even more players with special needs!
