Adapted Physical Activity for Kids

Children will experience moving their bodies and manipulating objects in a series of classes. Children will have the opportunity to develop fundamental movement skills and may choose to participate in learning sport specific skills relating to soccer, hockey, basketball, volleyball, ultimate frisbee, and dodgeball. All abilities are welcome and all skills will be adapted and modified as needed. The goal of this class is to introduce your child to physical activity at whatever level of adaptation (physical or cognitive) is required.
