HOW WE STARTED
Spectrum Sports was founded in 2016 by two special education teachers who saw a need for extracurricular activities for their students. Working together, Dan Minko and James Paoletti combined their passion for living an active lifestyle with their passion for the special needs population.
WHO WE ARE
Spectrum Sports is an inclusive sports
and fitness program for individuals of all abilities. We provide exercise through various sports, games, and group fitness.
Our mission is to ignite joy, promote health, and educate the special needs community through a dynamic and innovative program that combines fun, fitness, and learning.
We aim to empower and uplift the special needs community by bridging the gaps in exercise, socialization, and access to crucial information. We are dedicated to creating a world where every individual with special needs is given the opportunity to thrive and lead fulfilling lives.
We strive to create a supportive and inclusive environment where individuals with special needs can thrive, grow, and reach their full potential.
We have interns from local colleges who build upon their experience by assisting our athletes through individual movements. You can also receive class credits!
