The Greater Windermere Community League (GWCL) is pleased to be offering a 4 week Sportball Program to its members. The program will run on Friday nights from February 23rd to March 16th. There will be two offerings of the program, one at 6pm and one at 7pm. And will be offered at one of the school gyms in Windermere.
The class at 6:00pm-6:45pm will be geared towards children under the age of 5 who are not attending Kindergarten but are mobile (can walk and run with ease).
The second class at 7:00pm-7:45pm will be geared towards younger school aged children.
The focus of the program will be on social interaction between children as well as improving gross and fine motor skills. The program requires parental supervision and you are NOT allowed to leave your child(ren) unattended. The program will focus on using gym equipment to play games and build motor skills and will rotate every week. Because social interaction is the focus, there will be an instructor to ‘lead’ the class but it will involve the parents to ‘play’ with their kids using the equipment (primarily balls). Due to the age of the children, we will leave lots of time for free play so that children can explore!
GWCL has contracted instructors from Sport Ball to host these classes and am able to offer them at a discount to our members. These classes normally cost $64 from Sportball but we will be offering the classes for $40 per child for the 4 weeks to our members. Please bring a cheque or cash to the first class on February 16th. Your child will not be allowed to participate until payment has been received.
At this time, we can only offer this program to Greater Windermere Community League Members and their children under 12 years of age (elementary school aged). However, the structure of the programming is geared towards younger children under the age of 8.
Please fill out this application form to register your child(ren), if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send you a confirmation email with all the details of your enrolment.
Please note that you must have indoor non marking sole shoes to use the gym and no food or drinks are permitted. However, there is a water fountain in the hallway just outside the gym.
**Please note an earlier version of this post stated Feb 16 – Mar 9; however, after a scheduling conflict the program will now run 1 week later for a duration of 4 weeks (Feb 23 – Mar 16)**
