Our Programs

Optimst Miracle Movers current sports programs include Basketball (Winter) Swimming (Spring and Fall), Soccer (Spring), Softball (Fall).  Our programs are designed so that each athlete has a volunteer "buddy" to assist them throughout their practice and game time.  Parents are able to serve as the "buddy" if they feel it is how their child will enjoy and get the most out of the activity.  Parents and family may also choose to sit on the sidelines to watch and cheer along their athlete as they learn new skills and sports in a supportive environment. Registrations for each sport will open one month prior to the start of each individual sport season.  

Our Volunteers

Our program would not work if not or the volunteers!  Not only do we have volunteer coaches, but we have a volunteer paired with each athlete as they participate in his/her sport.  We do our best to pair athletes and buddies together for the entire season so they are able to get to know one another and learn from one another. 

Our volunteers are 13 years of age, but exceptions can be made for volunteers that have previous experience with children with special needs.  Any volunteers 18 years of age and older must complete a background check to particiapte.  If you are interested in volunteering at any level, in any sport, please contact our program Karen Cravotta at kacravotta@gmail.com, register at the general volunteer link below, or complete the sport specific volunteer registration available one month prior to the start of each sport.
