The BAWSI Rollers program provides fun, adaptive physical activities for girls and boys with physical, cognitive and hearing disabilities.
Through a fun and active curriculum that includes games like basketball, soccer, and sharks and minnows, the BAWSI Rollers program helps participants develop hand-eye coordination, strength, confidence and a sense of independence.
Weekly sessions include activities focused on goal setting, teamwork, and healthy competition, as well as spirited conversations about self-respect, responsibility, and leadership.

BAWSI Rollers Framework
BAWSI Rollers Curriculum
• Children connect with the same two BAWSI staff members each week.
• Our ratio of role model coaches to BAWSI Rollers is kept low for attention and connection.
• “Words of the week” provide clear expectations for what it means to be a BAWSI Roller.
• Low coach to participant ratios allow for pull-outs and coaching around positive team behavior
