It’s OFFICIAL! The newly formed Autism Youth Sports League has hit the ground running Literally! At Thursday’s 1st practice we ended it running… from an awesome summer thundershower/ downpour! I have come to the BELIEF that GOD was crying tears of JOY!! Joy that our special players finally have a LEAGUE TO CALL THEIR OWN!!
The players and families on “Our Team” are amazing people to say the least! No Derision, No Pressures! Just plenty of ENCOURAGEMENT, Understanding and Instruction. Fun on ALL~LEVELS! Today Sat. July 17th 2010 will be long remembered! Lora Mancini had a dream of this “Baby” … The idea of ~Youth Sports for kids with Autism.
WWAAaaaaaa!~((SLAP))!! Today It was born.With a GREAT…”APGAR” Score! A little glitch will occur here and there for the 1st few weeks- but, that is to be expected. We will undoubtedly be busy ironing all of those wrinkles out as we gain our footing.With MUCH MORE than capable President Manual Zapata as coach, teacher/father. I can’t be happier or PROUDER to have a hand in helping to “rear this child.” The incredible turn-out of families says it all! We are on the right path. The RIGHT HWY. The highway to not “wasting our time on the ground!” Our time on this planet! Focus on the powerfully POSITIVE! So many things in life are trivial and menial…The important things are LIFE~ AFFIRMING and you can feel it! Such is the case with A.Y.S.L. The Power here is PHENOMENAL ! Other worldly~ Divine. You CAN feel it!!
Am I over the TOP?? Perhaps, you may think so. However, parents, family, friends and ALL attending today understand where I am coming from. It is ‘in the air there‘ and you can just FEEL IT!! Sports has that POWER! Always has and ALWAYS will. Men know about it and the ‘smarter’ females too!! hehe (don’t be mad all you non-sports chicks!) Adding this dynamic with the almighty Autism is a delicate balance. A chemistry you play with. I often say Autism is all about “Finding your Formula.” …http://autismhwy.com/blog/?p=47….
The formula that works for your child, for you and for your family as a whole. Finding that delicate balance to help your ASD member to become as Happy and Successful as possible! This new factor we are inserting into that ‘chemistry set’~Organized Sports opens a whole NEW DOOR! A new dimension previously untapped. A DOOR to a world of self worth and self pride. A door NO ONE had been knocking on for them. Lots of players at the ballpark today “opening those doors” and many adults with “tears of joy “watching it happen!! IMAGINE THAT!?
