Minnesota Flyers is proud to offer our Inclusive division! Inclusive is a year-round program dedicated to providing athletic training and social engagement for individuals with special needs.
Our goal is to provide a platform where children and adults with physical or intellectual disabilities can be free to experience health and fitness along with other athletes in an integrative, comfortable, and safe environment.
In the spirit of Minnesota Flyers mission, as well as the international mission of the Special Olympics, our Inclusive program is designed to offer specialized training adapting to the needs of each athlete while embodying our Team philosophy. Our specially trained coaches work one-on-one with each athlete so everyone receives quality instruction based around individual abilities while also engaging together as one. We are one team and TOGETHER WE FLY!
