April 2021 – The activities, skills and fun continues!
In this time of self-isolating and protecting others and ourselves from the current medical pandemic, there is a unique opportunity to continue to build some foundations of physical literacy and movement skills. Many of our students and members need an opportunity to help build motor skills and appropriate fitness levels to participate successfully in physical activity at all levels. Sports and recreational activities are a great way to build relationships with peers. Many of these activities are more enjoyable if the individual has some knowledge, strength and movement skills.
BC Blind Sports continues to provide some ideas of types of activities that everyone can do in their home environment. Check in with us weekly to find out what you can do to continue to develop these skills and movements. Find out what ideas or activities are available online for you to try. Learn how to adapt equipment that will be useful and inexpensive. Share your ideas! Ask for help in adapting existing programs that might suit the level of vision the student has. It is a time to enhance and take part in daily Physical Activity in an environment that is inclusive and fun!
We will have a number of lessons for you to try this year. Some of these were available last year but have undergone a few changes. It is possible to use them over any period of time you choose. Two or more a week would be appropriate. We will end with a virtual sports day in early June!
