Slug Bugs, part of Children’s Village Parent to Parent One2One program kicked off their winter season with basketball!
Slug Bugs is a recreation program for children with special needs. Paired with teenage mentors, kids participate in a variety of sports by playing on a team, learning important skills such as sharing, taking turns, making friends and learning the basics of a sport. Slug Bugs also offers karate and yoga in the winter and baseball in the spring.
Hosted at the West Valley Church gym, Slug Bugs meets once a week for practice and a game.
Fun for the whole family, typically-developing siblings and family members often join in the fun helping and cheering on the kids. This inclusive environment provides a wonderful opportunity to have fun and try something new!
