Let’s Get Started

 
You will find many great resources on this page. Each week’s videos will be updated below with the current week listed. Practice plans can be found below the videos. If you have signed up for multiple disciplines, feel free to do the full practice plans for all disciplines you have registered for OR adjust the amount of training as needed.
 
Every week you’ll complete challenges and check in using the form linked below. Simply select the week you’re filling the form out for and the program you’re completing the form for.

Have questions on how to fill out the form? Watch this tutorial video.
 


 
 
 


 
 

Please note that exercises may be performed differently by each athlete depending on your level and experience – AND THAT IS OKAY!

 
If needed, you should modify drills in order to perform movements safely and with good form, move through practices at a slower pace, use stabilizing objects, eliminate weight from strength & conditioning drills, and rest as needed. If an exercise cannot be modified, you can skip that movement and focus on other exercises that work for you!

This program is all about getting active, acquiring new skills, and having FUN – don’t get discouraged if something is difficult. Just try your best and enjoy the learning process!

As you complete your practices and challenges, please share on social media using the tag @cafoundation and the hashtag #CAFHighSchoolSports for a chance to be featured on our social media platforms!

We also encourage you to post your own modifications for any of the warm-ups, drills, and strength & conditioning exercises so other athletes can learn about how YOU are adapting to the program! Make sure you are wearing a CAF shirt as you represent the High School Adaptive Sports Program!
