Development of a Seniors Can Move program: Classes are designed to improve agility, balance, coordination and strength and bring the basics of physical literacy to our senior population. The goal is to allow participants to regain their mobility, build friendships and keep active within the community.
Increase Facility Capacity: We will increase the number of classes we can offer during peak after school demand. We want to eliminate waiting lists and ensure we can meet community demand for gymnastics classes.
Adult Gymnastics Programing: Provide a space for adults to train more often and persue gymnastics specific strength. Learn handstands, presses, muscle ups while developing healthy range of motion, flexibility and strength. Adults will gain superior physical ability through gymnastics.
This project represents completion of the revitalization of Upper Gymnastics Hall and will complete the renovation started two years ago.
Including development of the new Multi-Purpose Gym space, this renovation includes painting of all areas (locker rooms, bathrooms, the viewing hall and multipurpose gym).
It includes purchase and installation of equipment for programs focussing on gymnastics strength, mobility & agility and movement based instruction.
It includes installation of seniors access/safety equipment including bathroom grab handles and an AED defribillator.
The application estimates a budget of $17000.00 and requests support from all electoral areas that have participants attending gymnastics programs.
