Champs League

Champs League is a multi-sport program for children Prek-12th grade, with special needs--including language, learning, attention, or physical--that may present a challenge in participating in mainstream leagues.  Champs League is a program focused on bringing kids of different abilities and special needs together through the avenue of team building activities and sports. Each Champs League player will be paired up with a Buddy, which is a volunteer who is in 7th-12th grade.
