An Opportunity for All

April 6, 2020 – In this time of self isolating and protecting ourselves and others from the current medical pandemic, there is a unique opportunity 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 will be providing some ideas of types of activities that can be done in the home environment. Check in with us weekly to find out what you can do to develop these skills. 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. This is a time to take part in daily PE in an environment that is inclusive and fun!
