Who We Are

Our mission is to offer inclusive recreational opportunities that support and celebrate diverse strengths and abilities through collaboration with families and community partnerships. 

Our history began in 2003 when the program was founded by Renee Gamberoni and Max Goode. Seeing a great need in our community for recreation and sports for children with special needs, the Nantucket S.T.A.R. Program was formed. Now, alongside their peers, children on Nantucket with special needs have access to sports, after-school activities and play groups and more!

We believe that everyone, regardless of of their physical, mental or emotional challenges should have access to quality sports and recreation.  Therapists, special educators and dedicated staff and volunteers are passionate about assisting people with special needs participate to their fullest potential.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
