Special Olympics Maine is pleased to announce that we will host two Motor Activities Training Day’s!

It is important to understand that this program is designed to offer athletes with severe to profound disabilities an opportunity to participate in a Special Olympics program. The program is not one of competition by nature, but rather stresses participation. It is an opportunity for this very special population to “show their stuff.” We have targeted six activity areas. The culmination of the Motor Activities Training Program (MATP) is a Motor Activities “Training Day.”
Each athlete attending will have the opportunity to “show their stuff” in at least 3 activity areas, depending upon the areas that he or she has prepared for. Additionally, those coaches who have athletes prepared to attempt their own “goals and objectives” are encouraged to prompt their athletes to success during the event. Coaches are ENCOURAGED to bring any equipment that will help display their athletes success during the event.
The Motor Activities Training Program is very adaptable, using many different types of adaptable equipment and means for achieving the greatest level of participation. Levels of assistance from coaches range from verbal to “hand over hand”; whatever it may take to get the desired results with this very special population.
