Multisport Day Program at Shawnigan Lake


purpose

The Canucks Autism Network Multisport Day Program is a great opportunity for participants with autism, and their siblings, to try a variety of sports activities! This summer, participants will be given the opportunity to play sports such as, softball, soccer, tennis, bike and physical literacy. We are very excited to offer this opportunity to Canucks Autism Network (CAN) families living on Vancouver Island in order for their child to gain new experiences to sport in a supportive, safe and collaborative setting. We want to recognize and say thank you to Shawnigan Lake School for their continued support in making this program possible. 

PROGRAM STRUCTURE

Each day 30 Participants (with ASD & siblings) will come for a 5 hour, one-day program. Lesson will include basic drills in all sports, supportive individualized skill practice and supervised group activities. Coaching will be provided in collaboration with program partners.
