Sports and Health Center
Sports & Health Center must be part of a healthy lifestyle, and Civitan has provided adapted educational programming for schools and peer organizations for more than five (5) years. It is our goal to assist our program participants to have the opportunities to reach and maintain healthier habits. The program focuses on behaviors that contribute to a healthy lifestyle while enhancing the quality of life through fitness, recreation, health and nutrition. Activities are adaptive and accessible for competitive/noncompetitive settings that include programs on bullying while incorporating anti-bullying curricula. We also include measures that provide more peer socialization through intramurals with other agencies like Civitan.
Program accomplishments to date:
- Civitan hosted its second intramural sporting event (t-ball in March and bowling in November) with six other agencies participating, impacting over 100 individuals with developmental disabilities in Maricopa County.
