In addition to adapted physical education, 1st Cerebral Palsy of New Jersey offers a unique adapted intramural sports program. Athletic activities are modified to accommodate all skill levels.
1st Cerebral Palsy is recognized for a Special Olympics team that travels and competes against other schools in the annual Essex County Meet. We have several special events throughout the year, including a Staff vs. Students Mobility Obstacle Course and tournaments in bowling, bocce ball, shuffleboard and horseshoes.
Students are given the opportunity to compete in the following sports:
Athletes train all year long to compete together in track, basketball and other challenging sports.
Players of all abilities practice this game's fundamentals in a non-competitive environment.
This action-packed game creates a fast-paced team environment and strengthens the bonds of friendship.
Track & Field
Aspiring athletes practice track and field basics: hurdles, relay races, long jump, javelin throw and more.
Riding seated on scooter boards keeps students interested and excited, boosts fitness levels and improves coordination.
Bowling is a sport that students easily grasp, making it the ideal game for beginning athletes.
This sport teaches hand-eye coordination, helps players learn to judge distances and builds confidence from learning new skills.
Shuffleboard is more than a game... it’s a great way for students to exercise and have a blast.
