NORTH ARLINGTON (Sept. 16, 2010) — If you thought that there was nothing out there for your child to do you haven’t heard about us. Special Angels Recreation, a year round sports and leisure activity group, is here and has a lot to offer. Our fall line up of activities include football, soccer, movie day, cheer, dance, peer model groups, music therapy, hayride, Dinner with Santa and much more.
Music is on Tuesday evenings and is one hour long for 10 weeks.
Peer Model Group sees our children interacting with typical peers doing age-appropriate activities. The group will meet Wednesday evenings for 1 ½ hours for eight weeks.
Flag football will run for the fall season ending in a Super Bowl complete with entertainment, half-time show and more. Football is on Saturday afternoons for one hour.
Soccer is on Sunday mornings for 1 hour with a guest appearance by a Red Bulls player.
Cheering is a dual sport both sideline for football and competition squad so this runs from September to March and has a lot of perks to it. We practice Saturday mornings and have a game Saturday afternoons for football. Competitions could be on a Saturday or Sunday.
Dance has been going on for months now and will end with a recital with guest appearances so please look for our recital date.
Pumpkin Picking Hayride Trip is on a fall day close to Halloween. We all get together at Abma’s Farm and do a pumpkin picking hayride trip complete with petting zoo, pony rides and more.
Movie day is so much fun. We schedule new release movies at the Williams Center and get to watch them with unlimited popcorn and soda and have the whole theater to ourselves .
And last but not least our Dinner with Santa. We have a real white-bearded Santa that lights up the room with his laugh, Christmas music playing in the background and tons of good food. We also have craft tables, goodies and more the children have a great time.
If you know of a family that has a child with autism or any other different needs from any town or county pass our information along.
No child will ever be turned away. These children deserve a chance to play sports and enjoy leisure activities in an appropriate setting for their needs.
