Keeping your kids entertained during the summer can be difficult for parents, sometimes more-so if they have a child with special needs. That's why Sky High Sports in Spokane hosts their Special Days for Special Needs on the first Tuesday of every month.
“It allows them to have a special time,” said manager Mikayla Lysek. “We turn down the music and the lights and try to keep it from being overwhelming so they can enjoy their time here.”
From 2-5 pm, special needs kids are invited to come and enjoy the trampolines at a discounted rate ($5 an hour instead of $10) and can be accompanied by a parent or therapist for free.
“We also section off an area for them if they're comfortable being more secluded,” said Lysek.
In addition to the general trampoline courts, Sky High also features specialized courts for dodge ball and basketball, a giant foam pit to bounce yourself into and a wide variety of arcade games.
