Activities for People with Disability
Discounted Casual Access to the Health Club
Huge benefits can be achieved through exercise for people with disabilities. To encourage people to get active, Morley Sport & Recreation Centre provides people with disabilities and their carers a heavily discounted casual visit fee of $3.50 to attend the health club. This allows access to cardio-vascular equipment (treadmills, bikes etc), weight machines and free weights. Please note: this fee simply covers access to the health club, if you require assistance with an exercise program or an equipment induction, an additional fee is applicable.
Inclusion 4 Life (Children with Disabilites)
Inclusion 4 Life is a new program that aims to raise community awareness of children with disabilities by promoting inclusive activities for both disabled and main stream children. The program focuses on teaching children skills in a variety of sports whilst making friends and having fun.
The program is designed as a low cost multi-sport / activity program open to all
children but has a strong focus on including children with a disability into mainstream community life. Differing local clubs assist in the delivery of the program, so each week participants have the opportunity to experience a new activity such as netball, karate and basketball.
Sessions are supervised by a qualified disability instructor and an assistant (in addition to the activity coaches) to guarantee the suitability of activities for children with disabilities.
This program is held on Tuesdays (3.45-4.45pm) during the school term for children aged 9-16yrs.
To enrol or for further information call the centre on 9375 3529.
Morley Sport and Recreation Centre working with the Centre for Cerebral Palsy
Morley Sport and Recreation Centre is pleased to be involved in another great community project.
Morley Sport and Recreation Centre is working with the centre for Cerebral Palsy to offer exercise variety to people with cerebral palsy. Our experienced personal trainers are using their expertise to write appropriate and effective exercise programs for clients with cerebral palsy.
There is also an element of 'Train the Trainer' in the sessions, so that some exercises can continue to be practiced off site and ensure maximum benefit to the client. The project aims to increase client mobility and provide meaningful, social interaction for clients.
The program is available to select individuals who are members of the Centre for Cerebral Palsy therapy programs.
