Small Champions is a local Eagle County charitable organization providing year round sports programs for children with such diverse disabilities as Cerebral Palsy, Down syndrome, blindness and Autism. Small Champions strives to introduce a wide variety of sports to each of its participants. Programs include skiing and snowboarding, swimming, horseback riding, gymnastics and golf.
Small Champions teaches children with multiple disabilities that life is a rich and exciting place, if you focus on abilities, not disabilities. Critical to this process is the specially selected instructor. Each instructor is chosen from a pool of individuals who are first and foremost, nurturing, supportive, kind, and trained in teaching children with adaptive needs. The child’s individual needs are then matched with an instructor who has training in meeting those needs.
Small Champions provides an opportunity for these special children to be part of a group that meets often to enjoy sports, grow, learn, and have fun! Repeated assurance and positive experiences can help overcome the many challenges that these children face on a daily basis. The final outcome is a sense of accomplishment and belonging that comes from learning a sport.
