What is U-FIT?

U-FIT is a family-centered program designed for children and youth with special needs. We provide physical activities in a fun, noncompetitive atmosphere that will help individuals reach their goals! By working along side skilled volunteers, the program is designed to build friendships, increase self-esteem, improve motor skills and levels of physical fitness while ultimately having fun in a nurturing environment. The key to the success of the U-FIT Program is through family involvement of those who participate. U-FIT tries to meet the goals and needs of the family that is as diverse as the participant.

Who can participate in U-FIT?

Children involved in the program range in age from 3 to 18 years and have a wide variety of disabilities. Participants receive individual instruction from trained volunteers and students at the University of Utah. 

Where and when are U-FIT activities held?

The activities are held on Friday evenings from 6pm to 7:30pm in HPER complex and in the HPER swimming pool. Parking is available after 5:30 on program nights in the Central Garage. The program follows the University academic calendar but does not meet in the summer.
