SACC was created to encourage, promote and develop opportunities in sports for children with physical and/or intellectual disabilities and to make sure that children with disabilities are included in their community to participate in an athletic program.

The SACC offers baseball, swimming, bowling, martial arts, gymnastics, weight training, basketball and water exercise for people with disabilities throughout the year.


Junior and Senior Leagues are available. Both leagues play by rules that are adapted to challenge the athlete's abilities. In Junior League, athletes hit off the tee and are assisted by their buddies when needed. The Senior League was developed for athletes with advanced skills and knowledge of the game who are able to play at a faster pace and do not need a buddy for assistance. This league also has teammates without disabilities who provide support and benefit the team by encouraging and helping the SACC athletes play to the best of their abilities.


Athletes participate in half-court games and/or in work stations that concentrate on various skills such as shooting, stretching and exercising, dribbling, bounce passing and lay-up. The main emphasis is the skills of the game.


Teams bowl two games. Bowlers have the option of bowling with or without gutter guards. Bowling ramps are available for those needing assistance with rolling the ball.

Gymnastics & Weight Training

Instruction is provided by the YMCA staff. Gymnastics is a very basic beginning level program involving skills such as forward rolls, walking on low balance beam, parallel bars, uneven bars and the trampoline. The weight training program is for athletes age 13 and above. It is an introduction to the form and technique of weight training and is designed to help improve coordination and strengthen muscles.

Martial Arts/Kung Fu

Instructed by Sifu Rick Panico, the Hung Gar Kung Fu style of self-defense is offered as an ongoing program throughout the year. It provides individualized instruction to meet the needs of each student. Discipline and self-control are the main emphasis.


Instruction is provided by the YMCA staff. Each athlete's abilities and skills are evaluated and then they are placed with an instructor to promote good swimming skills.
