New Paltz Special Needs Team

UpdatedWednesday October 20, 2021 byRobert Lucchesi.

Registration for the 2022 New Paltz Special Needs League is open.  The division is open to all students with special needs, age 6-21 in the New Paltz Central School District and surrounding school districts.  This year the Special Needs Division will be capped at 20 players.  

Sessions will be run as a skills clinic on Sundays from 11am to noon at the SUNY New Paltz Athletic and Wellness Center from January through March. The season schedule with specific dates will be posted in December.  We will focus on learning basic basketball abilities such as dribbling, passing and shooting.  Once skills are learned, we will play short scrimmages.  The team will provide an opportunity for exercise, socialization and confidence building.

Volunteer Buddies will assist the players.  Additional volunteers are always welcome and must also register prior to the start of the season.
