We wrote about some inclusive playgrounds and parks in the Twin Cities metro area, and we want to provide even more options for inclusive family fun! Here are a few of the many places in the Twin Cities that offer fun and adaptive sports for kids of all abilities.
Mini Hops Gymnastics – This awesome gym in Plymouth offers a range of programs for every level of support a child may need. Most of their adaptive gymnastics are geared toward ages 3-6, but they also have a No Limits Fitness class for ages 16+. There’s an intake form on the website to help craft the perfect adaptive play program for your little tumbler!
Minnesota Special Hockey – With branches all over the Twin Cities, the MN Special Hockey program can include athletes of all ages and abilities! The players focus on fun, friendships, teamwork, and physical activity. Minnesota Hockey offers other programs for blind and deaf players, so there’s something for every athlete.
Miracle League Baseball – Located in St. Cloud, the Miracle Field is open to every player. The turf is made of wheelchair-friendly rubber, and the completely flat surface makes mobility easier. Miracle League aims to help enrich the lives of 7,000 kids in the area, and they always welcome volunteers!
We hope these options help you and your family find a fun new sport to enjoy this fall!
