Ausome Multisport Mentorship is designed for young athletes on the autism spectrum, who are exploring all that sport and recreation have to offer. The goal is to get children moving and having fun, through a variety of sport-specific games and activities. Children will explore movement and learn the basic skills involved in a variety of sports, including soccer, basketball, track, baseball, tennis, obstacle training and more. Each activity in this program can be easily modified to match the skill set and interests of your Ausome athlete, so all levels of physical abilities are welcome.
As a Jake’s House mentor, you’ll be paired with an ausome athlete to help them run through each activity at their own pace. Expect balancing games, relay races, and interactive group games, thrown in amongst the other skills in a fun and supportive setting.
Please be prepared to commit to all of the days during this 12 week program. Although we understand that sometimes things ups, children will get the most out of the mentorship if they can development relationships with volunteer mentors. Your generosity and dedication will provide these children with life-changing experiences and we’re thankful for your help.
