Sports, Exercise and Games
Keeping fit and being active is an incredibly important part of life particularly in adults with special needs, whose opportunities are often limited resulting in a fairly sedentary lifestyle.
We have a highly passionate team member in Cory who has a bachelor’s degree in Applied Exercise Science. He has developed a set of skills which allows him to adapt his methods to meet the criteria of the intended users, thus allowing the opportunity for everyone to take part.
We like to encourage exercise in an enjoyable way, incorporating a wide variety of games and sports that are aimed at targeting the competitive and fun sides of our users. We have lots of fantastic gym, sports and games equipment and an incredible soft matted exercise area which makes activities and exercise much safer for the participating user.
We also promote physical fitness with group exercise classes that are tailored and adapted to all needs. We aim include activities that will give the opportunities for all to take part regardless of ability. We adapt to most of our activities through a combination of Sit and Fit, Story Drama and sports.
At Jamats we also like to add variety to our activities and try to create activities that appeal to the social development of our users as well as the physical development and hold regular bingo, quiz and games afternoons. Most of the games that are played will incorporate the weekly topic and be aimed at developing a variety of skills such as basic movement and hand eye co-ordination.
