Free Exercise Classes for Kids with Disabilities

Feedback is wanted

Feedback is wanted regarding the proposition of free exercise classes through the KFAC Ability Program at the Ku-Ring-Gai Fitness and Aquatic Centre.

The Ku-ring-gai Council is opening up Expressions of Interest to join KFAC Ability, a free exercise support program for young people aged 9 – 15 years with a disability at the new Ku-ring-gai Fitness and Aquatic Centre in West Pymble’s Bicentennial Park.

The New Ku-ring-gai Fitness and Aquatic Centre offers year-round swimming, as well as gym, café facilities and child play and care areas. For more information on this center and its services, visit; www.ymcansw.org.au/centres/kfac.

KFAC Ability is set to commence in March-June 2015, aiming to help young people build confidence, improve health and fitness and generally have fun!

The program will also include a free ‘recreational respite’ pass for parents, siblings and carers to use at the fitness and aquatic centre.

The classes will be as flexible and inclusive as possible, accommodating for the range of needs and abilities of children with disabilities.

To help design the program, the council needs to hear from interested members of our community. People who would like to have their say in what they would find beneficial and interesting from such a class should visit; http://www.kmc.nsw.gov.au/KFACability

Visit www.kmc.nsw.gov.au/KFACability for more information and to complete an Expressions of Interest form. If you have any questions on the KFAC Ability program contact eismaiel@kmc.nsw.gov.au or call 94240 997.
