Additional Information

Students Supporting Special Athletes

SSSA is composed of mainstream students who are interested in helping special needs students within the school and special needs members in the greater Westport community. The most consistent activity we participate in is playing unified sports. Club members compete with special needs students at Staples against other schools. We play soccer in the fall, basketball in the winter and track and field in the spring. We practice during our meeting time for 5 - 6 weeks, and then compete in a tournament or at a meet. Athletic ability is not important. Helping others and creating friendships is! The club also does small fundraisers, volunteers at Special Olympics and various other activities.  Since we are in COVID times, we will be meeting virtually and doing a variety of different activities - not necessarily sports related - but team building, getting to know you, perhaps fundraising, community education, etc.
