The West Shore Family YMCA is honored to hose the Adapted Football League, which began last month and runs for eight weeks. The league is run by Ryan Holesko, former Program Director at the Geauga Family YMCA and current Manager of Adapted Sports at the Achievement Centers for Children.  

The players were attempting to play in a parking lot previously, which was difficult as the lot wasn't designed for sports, and the outdoor location led to weather issues. The West Shore branch is already a great location for accessibility. For example, the branch hosts accessible indoor triathlons. Once branch director Ben Altemus connected with Ryan and learned of their needs, the rest was easy! 

The league is delighted to play indoors on a finished gym floor. And this may be just the beginning. Ryan also runs an adaptive summer day camp. He invited West Shore branch Wellness Director Erin Troy and Ben to tour to see if there are more opportunities for collaboration.
