July School Holiday Programme

WHY

We think every child/youth with a physical disability should have the opportunity to take part in regular physical activity and sport. We're making the most of the school holidays to get people active! With a focus on Para athletics, these sessions will provide an introduction to our most inclusive sport before regular training commences in preparation for the Halberg Games in October.  


WHAT

Holiday Programme: CLM have kindly offered their great facility to use so we will be alternating between athletics, swimming and other games with some chill out time in between. Whilst the younger kids can make the most of the bouncy castle, our teens can explore the cross fit gym!

  • Suitable for: 5 - 11 years, 12 - 18 years
  • Cost: $15

Athletics Accelerator Programme: A fun introduction for those that are new to Para athletics, whilst also developing the skills of those who have had prior experience. Run faster, push harder, throw further and jump higher! All while making friends and having fun!

  • Suitable for: 5 - 21 years
  • Cost: $5

Fit & Fun: Come along and take part in group exercises all designed to get you moving and improve your fitness. Try out boxing, slam balls, relay races and many more!

  • Suitable for: 10+ years
  • Cost: Gold coin donation

Wilson Home Trust Holiday Programme: We’re delivering Para athletics sessions as a part of the Wilson Home Trust Holiday Programme. Other activities include: drumming, music therapy, hip hop and arts and crafts! To sign up for their programme go to:

  • Suitable for: 5 - 20 years

WHO

For those with physical or visual impairments and their whanau. Check out the age requirements for each programme above. 

This is a sports programme, not day care. As such any assistance with personal cares will not be provided. Parents/carers are required to stay for the session to provide any assistance their child may need. Those who are independent may only be left after discussions with Parafed Auckland staff.
