Xcessible Leisure 2013

On Friday 25th July twelve enthusiastic staff members from the Kingfisher Club Waterford attended an Xcessible Leisure Centre Training Course.
WWaterford Sports Partnership ran the course in partnership with the Kingfisher Club Waterford, the course was tutored by Rosemary Ryan and Brenda O’ Donnell (CPSI & CARA Tutors). The overall aim of the course was to heighten the awareness of the benefits of exercise, active healthy lifestyles and participation for people with disabilities. 

The course included a mixture of both theory and practical modules. The theory module included areas such as disability models, perceptions, barriers to participation and correct terminology. The practical module focused on participants learning how to develop and adapt a physical activity session to cater for all participants regardless of disability.
Participants were delighted with how the course ran on the day with Maurice McCartan suggesting the course was “Essential for anyone working in a leisure facility”.
