U-FIT is a family-centered program designed for children and youth with special needs. We provide physical activities in a fun, non-competitive environment to help them reach their goals. With the help of skilled volunteers, they will build friendships, increase self-esteem, and improve motor skills and ﬁtness while having fun. The key to the success of the U-FIT Program is the family involvement of those who participate. Community Members/Families and University Students/Volunteer reach out to Paul Warner, U-FIT Program Director.
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. Total participant enrollment is determined by volunteer commitment.
How do I find U-FIT activities?
The activities are held on Friday evenings from 6 pm to 7:30 pm in the HPER complex and in the HPER swimming pool. Parking for the U-FIT program is located in the Central Garage. The program follows the University academic calendar and does not meet in the summer.
