Sports and Recreation Programs
Open to all towns

For all CORSE-sponsored recreation programs

 

All Stars provides recreation programs for ALL children, those with and without special needs who would prefer a less competitive atmosphere.  Our programs are highly motivating within a structured setting to build skills in a particular physical and social activity while having fun!  This more relaxed setting, along with a low student to staff ratio (3 to 1), offers the perfect opportunity for children with moderate special needs to participate in community programs alongside their friends and peers.

 

Each program has a 3:1 (student to staff) ratio, unless otherwise designated. This 3:1 student to staff ratio allows for most children with and without special needs to successfully access our classes independently, if the student can understand directions, be able to request assistance and have basic verbal skills to communicate with peers. If your child needs access to medications, please be aware that there is no nurse on-site.  Parents are responsible for assuring the appropriate information is provided to the instructors.  Instructors cannot dispense medication or perform testing.  If there is an emergency, 911 will be called.  If a parent/guardian believes that a program is not accessible to their child without reasonable accommodations and wants more information, please contact the CORSE Foundation who will put you in touch with the appropriate program provider.  If you register your child within 10 days of the program start date, your child’s start date may be delayed one week to ensure proper staffing and appropriate reasonable accommodations.

 

For 2019, these programs have been generously supported by grant funding received from the Grace E. Brooks Trust, Evan Henry Foundation, Edwin Phillips Foundation, South Shore Playhouse Associates, Rockland Trust Charitable Foundation as well as our community fundraising supporters.

Financial assistance is available for all programs, please contact corsefoundation@comcast.net for more information and guidelines.

Programs fill quickly so please follow the detailed registration processes for each program below. 

 

We welcome out-of-town registrations based on providers’ guidelines. All recreation programs follow the policies and procedures of that provider. You must register with that program provider to participate.
