HAVE YOU MET JUSTIN BEFORE?

'My name is Justin Heenan.  I am a DDSA Volunteer.  I have also volunteered with the Special Olympics for the past 6 years in various capacities. Currently, I am the Head Coach and Manager for the Active Start and FUNdamentalsSports Programs in Ajax. Active Start is designed for athletes aged 2 to 7 while FUNdamentals is designed for athletes aged 7 to 12. As an Ontario Certified Teacher I work with the Durham District School Board to bring out the success of my students each and every day. I also am completing my Master's Degree in Counselling Psychology in order to improve my ability to work with individuals with Special Needs. In the Special Olympics, I work to ensure that my athletes are as successful as possible as well. The idea of these sports programs is to work with athletes and their families to improve their athletic abilities and social skills in a safe, fun and stress free environment. It is our hope that these children will develop the basic athletic abilities that will afford them with the opportunity to play sports in the Special Olympics when they are old enough to participate in said sports.

Our next session is starting up in September. We run three, 10-week sessions throughout the school year. Please feel free to email me at justinheenan@trentu.ca for additional information.'                                                                                                                                                                                           Justin:)
