Special Needs Recreational Fitness Programs

SABAH works with special needs athletes of all ages through a number of community programs open to students throughout the Buffalo-Niagara area and Western New York.

And thanks to the kindness of the Buffalo Sabres and Buffalo’s own lacrosse team, the Buffalo Bandits, we have the space we need to offer a variety of athletic activities such as ice skating, soccer, volleyball, and track and field. The classes provide skilled and experienced instructors, including a New York State Certified Physical Education teacher.
