Empower Sports Basketball
Empower Sports and Orange Community Education & Recreation are teaming for basketball season to offer a basketball team program for athletes with special needs. Our team will learn basketball skills through fun, interactive drills and play weekly games with volunteer teams. During intermixed games, our players will play alongside their peers in a noncompetitive environment where everyone get an opportunity to shine! The program values helping players develop social skills, self-esteem and overall well-being. New participants are encouraged to call Empower Sports at 216-400-8598 with any questions before signing up to learn more about the program.
Empower Sports is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to providing sports and exercise programs for children and adults with various physical and cognitive disabilities. We value diversity, relationships, service, and empathy.
To put it simply, we are sports junkies. We grew up playing the games we love, and now as dedicated professionals we are working to provide those opportunities to those in need while fostering relationships between individuals of diverse backgrounds.
Programs emphasize socialization skills, self-esteem, teamwork, discipline and (most importantly) HAVING FUN!
