The Adapted Physical Activity Wednesday Night Program

The APA Wednesday Night Program has been a mainstay at West Chester University for 30 years! Forty five children ages 5 to 21 with a variety of abilities are divided into 9 groups. Each group is led by a PEID minor along with a volunteer. The program runs for 10 weeks in both the gym and pool. Weekly progress notes are written to the families. The Fall Semester focuses on adapted sport while the Spring Semester focuses on adapted physical education and adapted swimming.
