Promoting Adapted Sports Skills Clinic

Improving sport skills in individuals with disabilities

The School of Health & Human Sciences' Adapted Movement Programs (AMP) offers a Promoting Adapted Sports Skills (PASS) Clinic. This clinic provides a unique opportunity for individuals with disabilities ages 8 and up to receive sport-related instruction with a sibling. As always, our clinics have a dual purpose: to provide quality programming for individuals with disabilities and to educate students in the Department of Kinesiology about adapted physical activity. Therefore, PASS participants will receive instruction from an upper-level kinesiology student.

Program details

Improving sport skills, e.g., group or individual sport skills is the main objective of the PASS Clinic. Participants receive individualized (one to two participants per instructor) sport skill related programming based on their abilities. We want to also to extend an invitation to interested siblings to participate alongside their brother or sister with a disability. Activities vary for each individual, but participants focus primarily on improving group or individual sport skills related to a sport or activity of their choosing. This may include participation in small group games. All activities will be individualized and modified based on participants initial skill level.  Kinesiology students will develop individualized lesson plans tailored to the needs of each participant.

Instructors

AMP PASS clinic participants will receive instruction from IUPUI students in the Department of Kinesiology. Some student instructors participate in this clinic as the lab portion of an upper-level kinesiology course, while others are volunteers. All student instructors receive training and are supervised by clinic staff.

Schedule and location

PASS Clinic will be held on Saturdays from 9:30–11 a.m. with the first week starting on Saturday, May 12, 2018, and continuing through June 16. The clinic will not be held on May 26 due to Memorial Day weekend.

AMP PASS Clinic will be held at George Washington High School, 2215 W. Washington St. Indianapolis, IN 46222, this summer due to gymnasium floor renovations at the IUPUI Natatorium.
