Enrolling your child in a sport has tremendous benefits such as endurance, strength, and overall fitness. At times, it may seem challenging to find the appropriate sport or "right fit" for your child who may be diagnosed with any disability, learning disorder, or autism. That is why QSTA has a program that enables your child to participate in group sports.
If you feel that traditional sports might not be the best idea, it may be a good idea to start with sporting activities where each member of the team contributes independently. Track and Field is an individual sport where you are part of a team. This sport allows your child to be part of a team but alleviate the stress of being fully dependent on each other every second of the game. In addition, track gives children an avenue to stay healthy and teach them the value of practice makes perfect.
Registration is $50 per athlete.
