Join us for PLAY6S Community Programming!

PLAY6S Community Programming provides inclusive, interactive movement opportunities for children and youth ages 6-16 of all abilities. We teach fundamental movement skills that build in complexity over the course of 8-weeks in a playful and unique way. Our focus is developing confidence, competence and motivation in each individual through inclusive playful movement.

We welcome all participants to bring along their friends and families to play and learn along side them.

WHY PLAY6S?​

In order to be successful in playful movement, we have to first challenge the 3 main barriers, as proven by research, for participation that individuals living with disabilities face when accessing physical activity programming.

1.

Lack of
programs/
opportunities

2.

Fear on the part of the participant, parents, and the instructors

3.

Lack of training and knowledge on the part of the instructors

(Moran & Block, 2010; Moran, Taliaferro, & Pate, 2014)

Our Response to These Barriers

1.

To increase the knowledge, skills and confidence of teachers, coaches, and/or professionals through functional PLAY6S Training. 

2.

PLAY6S Community Programming focuses on the physical, cognitive and social/emotional accessibility of spaces, programming and programming facilitation. 

3.

PLAY6S Training and PLAY6S Community Programming are built on a foundation of play. Play is an  inherently adaptable and flexible vehicle for connecting people to movement and to their communities.
