About Kinetic Kids:
Kinetic Kids are children from all walks of life who experience
the daily struggles of life-long challenges including but not limited
to cerebral palsy, spina bifida, down’s syndrome, autism,
asperger’s syndrome, brain tumors, cancers, or other neurological
disorders. These children have the desire to perform age-
appropriate recreational and sports activities like their typically
developing peers. They are children who may use wheelchairs as
their primary mobility or they may use a walker or crutches. They may also be independent with mobility but for
other reasons, are limited in their participation from recreational activities with their peer group.
Mission:
Kinetic Kids was established to provide health, recreational, and educational services to these children and their
families. Their mission is to provide unique experiences through physical and creative activities in a supportive
environment to children with special needs who may otherwise be excluded.
Programs:
Kinetic Kids offers year round, comprehensive group programs for children with special needs with physical and
cognitive disabilities! The sports and recreation programs run in four seasons including Winter, Spring, Summer,
and Fall.
Kinetic Kids offers sports programs, art and music programs, educational programs.
Each season provides a different line-up of programs.
Most programs run once a week for 30 minutes to 1 hour for 6-8 weeks.
We also offer 1 day special events such as outdoor explorer and educational programs.
Programs are designed and facilitated under the guidance of physical and occupational therapists.
Kinetic Kids has customized divisions to best meet the needs of children with a wide variety of diagnoses in a group
environment. Divisions include Allstar, Champions, Parent and Me, and Competitive.
