Social Connections Running Club
Without Limits Charleston will lead another season of the Social Connections Running Club in February and March of 2024. The Social Connections Running Club is for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and/or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The program will be held on six consecutive Saturdays from February 10th through March 16th and is led by our certified coaches. The running group is designed with the following goals in mind:
1. To build running skills and confidence
2. For social opportunities in the context of running
3. To have fun without pressure
4. To exercise/expend energy which is beneficial for self-regulation and sensory-regulation
The club/program is aimed toward neurodiverse children 12-18 years old and is open to all running experience levels. Neurodiverse is defined here as average to above average intelligence and communication skills, but difficulty with social skills, executive function, and/or self-regulation. Exceptions can be made to the age range, but please reach out before registering to request more info. Practices will be 90 minutes long and held on Saturday mornings at 9am at Mount Pleasant Memorial Waterfront Park.
Registration fee: $199.
Limited partial scholarships are available. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org on how to request a scholarship.
Hydration and nutrition are important for this program. All athletes should bring water to every practice.
