Our methodology
STS Training

STS training for Special Needs is a training methodology created by a college Coach Luis Gajardo (Physical fitness trainer & Kundalini Yoga Teacher), that enables all special needs to have fun playing Soccer, Fitness and Yoga at their levels. They will have a chance to improve Gross motor, Social Skills, Physical Fitness and Mindfulness (breathing technique, relaxation with our Gong sound therapy).  Players will move from station to station throughout 20 to 30 minute to work on all areas. Each station is developed to have players working in a time and intensity-controlled environment where they have fun. The next 20 minutes will go thru Mindfulness activities with a Gong sound relaxation.

Buddies and Coaches Orientation

INDIGOGAP give a wonderful opportunity for our youth to volunteer their time and energy to our special needs players. Before starting the program, buddies and coaches need to go through an orientation class with coach Luis the director of the program to explain what is expected of them during the upcoming training. At orientation, review commitment requirements, give instructions on how to deal with special needs players and how the program is operated. Make sure to emphasize that buddies should focus on their relationship with their player as opposed to socializing with other buddies or showing off their sports skills. Prohibit cell phone use during sessions.
