Want to make friends in a fun, challenging environment, whilst also working on your coordination and strength? The gym/ninja warrior tribe is a unique service facilitated by an Occupational Therapist at The Y (YMCA) North Lakes. Primary and high school is on Wednesdays from 6-7.30pm, and Kinder Ninja is Fridays from 1-2pm. The tribe aims to assist young people to practice social skills learnt during therapy in a motivating, supportive atmosphere. The first hour includes Ninja Warrior activities and the last half hour offers and opportunity for young people to have a drink and a snack and practice 'trading information' (conversation skills). Shorter sessions can be negotiated for those with developing attention spans.
Primary and high school groups will rotate around 2-3 zones of the gym depending on the program and theme for the session:
- gymnastics equipment such as balance beams and trampolines
- Ninja gym
- Gymnastics floor area for games and activities.
