Have you ever thought that your vision-impaired child could do a cool sport like GYMNASTICS?
BlindGym caters for children attending primary school, that are Blind or have a visual impairment.
In our Blind Gym classes the children use:
· Balance beams
· Foam pits
· Climbing Ropes
· And the Tumbling floor
Children begin with basic skills such as safe landings, rolls and hangs and progress through to handstands, cartwheels, somersaults, swings, twists, rope climbs and more! This helps the kids to work on skills that are emphasised in OT such as fall prevention, falling without getting hurt, balance (and how to regain it), spatial awareness as well as developing strength, flexibility and coordination.
We have a one to one ratio for the participants, meaning each child has a sighted coach assisting them throughout the entire class. Our staff are qualified Gymnastics coaches, that have “on the job” training working with children that are blind or vision impaired.
When: Friday afternoons from 5.15 - 6.10 pm during school terms.
How much: $47.00 per fortnight, plus an annual insurance and registration fee of $50.00
