Format and COVID precautions.

The League will be Co-Ed.    Teams will be constructed of athletes (persons with physical or intellectual disabilities) and partners (ASU student volunteers).  Games will be 5v5.

If you have concerns about your child’s ability to participate, or if you feel like your child would be a good fit but doesn’t meet the age range as described, please let us know. Our goal is to adapt play to allow any athlete to participate in a meaningful way.  

This program is designed to teach players the fundamentals of the game and how to work as a team. Rules will be adapted as needed to accommodate the strengths and limitations of the children on each team and will be fluid.  We will loosely be following the Special Olympics Basketball rules throughout the season.

Following the season we will be putting together at least one team to participate in the Special Olympics Tournament that your participant may be eligible for.

-All participants must be symptom free for 14 days before attending live practice.
-Temperature Checks and Symptom Screening prior to all practices.  Any participant who is exhibiting or discloses symptoms of illness during the temperature check / symptom screening is not permitted to enter the facility and must be sent home as soon as possible.

What's Included?

Our season runs 8 weeks long.   Week 1 will be a skills assessment day where we will try to pair participants onto teams in which everyone is able to make a meaningful contribution.  Sessions during weeks 2-7 will consist of 45 minutes of skills development, and 45 minutes of playing games.   Week 8 will be the “Grand Finale,” and be all games.

Participants will be supplied with equipment and jerseys needed to play the game.  The jerseys will be yours to keep.  Your registration fee also covers field/facility rental, and insurance.  There are no hidden costs.

The cost is set at $150 for your first child.  A sibling discount is in place so that the price for adding the first sibling  receive a $20 discount and so are $80 each. 

If cost is a barrier for your family, please do not hesitate to reach out.  We really want everyone to be able to participate, and scholarships are available.

If you are worried about investing and you are unsure if your child will participate, let us know.  We can arrange a trial.

Athletes should fall into their age range at the start of the season.

Clicking the registration button will take you to a third party registration site where you will create an account for yourself as the guardian, and then it will guide you to add your child(ren).
