Let’s Get Active focuses on developing fundamental movement skills and physical literacy.
Our Let’s Get Active Program allows children to explore their balance, motor skills, and flexibility using hula hoops, parachute games, balls, bean bags, and more. During this program, we introduce children to basic skills used in para-sports such as Wheelchair Basketball, Boccia, and Baseball. The sessions focus on fundamentals, station play, introduction to parasport, group play, and cooperative play. Easter Seals NL assists our participants to reach their physical activity goals in a fun, exciting, and rewarding way by engaging them in challenging games and activities. Some goals may be “I want to use my walker or wheelchair better”, “I want to run faster”, or “I wish to throw further.” With a large interest in this program, we have dived into smaller groups based on skills and goals the participants share.
Let’s Get Active is delivered weekly on Saturdays, this program is broken down into semesters running Fall, Winter, and Spring in 8-12 weeks blocks.
Registration Cost: $25/per semester (Fall/Spring)
$50/per semester (Winter)
Our goal is to provide people of all ages with physical, cognitive, and any other disabilities with the opportunity to participate in programs and services that aim to build inclusion in Newfoundland and Labrador.
