The Anne Arundel County Commission on Disability Issues encourages youth of all abilities and their families who are looking for a fun sports-oriented experience to check out the Spring/Summer Program Guide from the county Department of Recreation and Parks.

Among the Adaptive Recreation offerings are Adaptive Swim programs for Youth and Adults at the warm water pool at the Ruth Eason Special School in Millersville. New this season at the Ruth Eason Pool is an aqua relief program for adults who may suffer from joint or back pain. Adaptive Swim options are also available at the two community swim centers at the North Arundel Aquatic Center in Glen Burnie and the Arundel Olympic Swim Center in Annapolis for those youth with some swim experience and are able to acclimate to a loud environment and cold water and are toilet trained.

Integrated and Adaptive Sports such as Challenger Baseball, soccer, kickball, and lacrosse will be offered on Saturdays at the Freedom Field at Lake Waterford Park in Pasadena. New integrated adult softball and kickball programs are being planned and need players.

There also are social clubs offered on Friday nights at both Ruth Eason Special School in Millersville and Central Special School in Edgewater for teens and young adults with disabilities.

For information on fees, length of each session, and start dates for programs, contact Wendy Scarborough at 410-222-7313, pick up a program guide at a county library or other local sites, or visit www.aacounty.org/recparks
