WHY DO THIS PROGRAM?

Why do this program?

AFA's B3 program is much more than skateboarding. Balance focused sports like skateboarding have been proven to have an abundance of benefits for individuals with intellectual and/or developmental exceptionalities.

For example, research has demonstrated an increase in physical balance, focus, leg strength, endurance, and improved motor skills. However, this skatebaording porgram is much more than physical activity. There are many proven social-emotional advantages such as gaining independence, building confidence, improving communication, and developing stronger coping skills within the duration of this program.

Bonus:

After graduating this program each athlete has the opportunity to continue to skateboard at the 180 house once a week! If you'd like more details on this let us know.
