The YMCA of South Florida, Greater Hollywood, has an amazing gymnastics program! However, this petition is to enhance their program by welcoming a new class into the gymnasium, structured for children with special needs. This class will be a one-to-one and then eventually move into small group classes.
The objective is to create a safe and fun environment where children with special needs can have a structured yet exciting experience, progress in gross and fine motor skills, speech, social-play, building self-esteem and body confidence. Gymnastics is an enjoyable sport that is known to improve overall strength, balance, coordination, and concentration.
Currently, there are no gymnastic programs uniquely designed for children with special needs in the Greater Hollywood YMCA. We wish to support and assist children and families so they may enjoy and participate in a beautiful sport with a little help from the YMCA.
Signatures for this petition are to express to the YMCA of South Florida, the necessity and strong desire for this class in the community. Please join us to support the development of this program and/ or if you would like to sign up for this exciting new devision.
