In 2014, the Hingham Sports Partnership (HSP) and the Hingham SEPAC (Special Education Parent Advisory Council) teamed up to offer athletic and recreational activities for special needs kids in Hingham and the South Shore. This venture is called South Shore SNAP (Special Needs Athletic Partnership).
The mission of the South Shore SNAP ("SNAP") is to provide our community of special needs children and their families the opportunity to take part in athletic activities/programs that are specifically designed and tailored to their disabilities and generally not available through mainstream programs as follows:
- SNAP will develop, staff, and produce activities/programs for pre-school through high school aged special needs students, and will secure the resources needed to provide activity/program offerings each season.
- As a 501(C)(3) entity, SNAP will raise money through all means available to it to ensure the longevity of its mission.
- SNAP will work hand in hand with all relevant disciplines to ensure that the activities/programs offered are properly developed to address participants’ special needs, including the training of mentors and coaches.
- SNAP will endeavor to produce a very positive athletic and social experience for all involved.
