Athletes with significant disabilities are those who, because of their physical, intellectual, or emotional problems, need highly specialized training programs. As a unique sport-based program, The Motor Activity Training Program does not exclude any athlete. It is designed to provide individualized training programs to all athletes with significant disabilities. MATP creates opportunities for athletes to perform their personal best effort in basic sports skills for each individualized athlete.
The purpose of the Motor Activity Training Program is to provide training for athletes in skills that are related to and may lead to participation in a traditional Special Olympics event.
