DESCRIPTION

Early bird registration is $40 for participants registered by April 15th!

FRIENDS - FUN - FITNESS

Designed for ASD youth ages 6 to 12.

Many children with motor planning challenges find gym class, recess, and staying physically active extremely frustrating. Not feeling successful in physical play with peers can lead to poor self esteem. To help, the Autism Society—Omaha Support Network has developed Recreation Club. Kids in need of more coaching and movement assistance come together every other week to work on gym activities and physical fitness exercises. This interactive, activity-based program will emphasize improving physical competence while developing social skills to improve peer interactions. Activities have been designed to improve body awareness, strength and motor skills.

Kids will also learn sportsmanship, teamwork and problem solving skills during game play. Our goal is to improve ability and confidence for school as well as encourage continued physical fitness into their later teen and adult years.

In order to maximize the experience for all participants, all registrants will be required to bring along a "Buddy". This Buddy can be a parent or sibling over 16 years of age. We understand that not all athletes will want to work with their Buddy and we will help facilitate a Buddy Swap if desired. However, in order to achieve our goals for all of our participants it is important that we are able to provide consistent one to one support for every participant. This is also a great way for the family to grow together in your recreational endeavors!

Cost is $50 for the full 6-week program payable at the first session.
