Abstract: This project description describes the rationale for the coordination of the Sports Empowerment Program, an inclusive softball day camp. It will examine why inclusive practices in athletic settings are beneficial to both individuals with and without a disability. This project description specifically looks at 1) how inclusive athletic settings can change the way individuals without a disability view others with a disability; and 2) how inclusive athletic settings can positively affect the confidence levels of an individual with a disability. Lastly, this project description will discuss how an inclusive sports day camp can be coordinated on a college or university campus.
