Southern Chesapeake Athletic Association (SCAA)

We ALL can Play Ball at SCAA!!

Southern Chesapeake Athletic Association (SCAA) is proud to announce the relaunch of our Champions League!

The Champions League provides the opportunity for children with special needs to pursue their dreams of team sports in America’s favorite pastimes of baseball and softball. It is our goal to provide an environment that enhances the participants’ self-esteem, physical mobility, and embodies the spirit of teamwork and community.

Any individual ages 7 to 15 with a physical or intellectual challenge may participate. If an individual can participate in the traditional baseball or softball programs with reasonable accommodations they should do so.

Players will join coaches and volunteers each week on Sunday afternoons at the SCAA complex for an hour of baseball fun and development. The Champion program is customized to focus on the unique skills and abilities of the team members. Still, the structure will consist of skill-building and development for the first portion of the hour and then applying and refining those skills in a team scrimmage for the remainder of the time. I am very excited to announce that Virginia Wesleyan University Baseball's captain, Adam Brooks, has volunteered to help me run the division this season. Adam is a senior that is majoring in Recreational Therapy and is excited to share his insights, experience, and passion with the team.

REGISTER TODAY at www.southernchesapeake.com!

Children ages 3 to 6 will play in our traditional Foal & Shetland tee ball divisions.

If you have additional questions or need more information please contact our Champions League Coordinator Nicole Jones at [email protected]

**SCAA is the largest Youth Baseball and Softball organization in the Hampton Roads area. Boys and girls ages 3 to 19 can learn and grow in our tee ball, baseball and softball programs held at our 13 field complex (located at 2849 Eason Rd in Chesapeake). All skill & experience levels have a home with SCAA!**

As a teen with cerebral palsy, Matthew Walzer was unable to tie his shoes — prompting him to ask Nike for help. Yahoo Life sits down with Walzer to discuss his motivation behind the viral letter, how the developments with Nike have changed his life, and his hopes for a more inclusive future.

The foundation for lifelong health begins during the first five years of your child’s life. When young children participate in activities that take place at home, at daycare/preschool, and in the community, they can experience healthy living and learn new skills. The Young Children’s Participation & Environment Measure (YC-PEM) is designed to help parents and caregivers share what is known and what changed about the child’s participation with professionals who can help reach goals.

Developmental changes in paediatric neurodisability: from concepts to diagnostics and therapy: Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology

We have recently published a new Virtual Issue in Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology on: Developmental changes in paediatric neurodisability: from concepts to diagnostics and therapy.

This collection includes papers from a workshop in Groningen led by Mijna Hadders-Algra which dealt with changing concepts in paediatric neurodisability and the consequences for diagnostics and intervention, as well as five other key papers on those themes.

Parents' involvement in their children's intervention is associated with positive rehabilitation outcomes. This study revealed that a highly engaged parent sees the intervention plan as appropriate, feels like a partner in the process, and expects to have positive outcomes for their child.
