Every Body Athletics believes that everybody is an athlete, regardless of physical or cognitive capacities. Every Body Athletics also gets its name from our focus on exercising every part of the body: physical, social, and emotional. Lastly, Every Body Athletics understands that we all benefit when we include everybody in our society and communities. Your role as a volunteer (Teammate) is very important, as you will help ensure that these tenets are being realized.
During each one-hour session, you will work out alongside our athletes, modeling proper techniques and providing encouraging along the way. You will also help our athletes exercise their social-emotional skills by facilitating positive interactions among all participants. At times, you may be working one-on-one with an athlete, providing assistance as s/he moves through different exercise stations. During our large group activities, you may find yourself leading a small group of athletes through various stretches and conversation starters. Throughout it all, you will be an integral part of Every Body Athletics, providing our athletes with a safe, positive, inclusive environment to gain and maintain the physical, social, and emotional skills needed in their adult lives.
Every Body Athletics is an inclusive movement focusing on bettering the quality of life for adults with disabilities, and you’ll definitely want to be a part of it! For more information on how to become a Teammate, fill out the information below and a staff member will get in touch with you shortly:
