Every year, students with special needs participate in the Levittown School District’s Challenger Basketball League. Two teams competed in the Challenger League this year: Salk/MacArthur and Wisdom Lane.
The Challenger Basketball League gives students with special needs the opportunity to participate in sports acitivies that they would otherwise not be able to participate in.
Students were happy and excited to participate in a team sport. All of the students act as “buddies,” by helping to coach and support their peers on the court. The two teams participating in this year’s Challenger Basketball League received an outpour of support from members in the community.
