Multisport Summer Program
The Canucks Autism Network Multisport Summer program is a great opportunity for participants with autism, and their siblings, to try a variety of sports activities! This summer, participants will be given the opportunity to play sports such as football, softball, soccer and more. We are very excited to offer this opportunity to CAN families in order for their child to gain new experiences to sport in a supportive, safe and collaborative setting.
At Canucks Autism Network, we strive to meet the needs of each participant through parent collaboration. Our staff receive training on a variety of support strategies for children and youth with autism. Please do not hesitate to speak with coaches and support staff about strategies to use with your child (e.g., visual schedules, first-then boards, token systems, social stories, etc.) and contact the Program Coordinator, Caitlyn Van Dijk (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions or concerns.
