The Hunterdon Outreach Programs, started in Hunterdon County in the Spring of 2003, serves to promote and develop different sports for children in our Community who are physically or developmentally disabled.
Currently, our programs include Soccer, Basketball, Baseball and Tennis. Our program is designed to grow and adapt to the needs of the children and to promote the growth of the program in the Community-at-large. Our program introduces these children to the sports who are not normally recruited due to their disabilities.
All the programs that we conduct are free to the participating athletes. Each program brings the volunteers, athletes, and their parents together in a fun and caring environment. This is an excellent way to bring handicapped and non-handicapped individuals together. Our volunteers are selected from current Travel and Recreation programs throughout Hunterdon County, high schools, and religious and social organizations expressing an interest in becoming involved in the program. Volunteering in all our sports is approved for community service hours by various religious and civic organizations.
