Your family might enjoy squash and all the benefits it has to offer. This opportunity consists of court time and instruction from junior players with supports from a certified coach and his staff. This program is geared for individuals on the spectrum and their siblings ages 8 to 18. Time will be spent on gaining physical fitness and learning social skills. Components will include safety in the courts and at the facility, hand-eye coordination, fair play, sportsmanship and turn-taking among others. / Votre famille apprécierait peut-être le squash et tous ses bénéfices. En vous inscrivant à ce programme, vous avez accès aux courts de squash et un entraîneur agréé – assisté de membres de son personnel – est sur place pour initier les jeunes joueurs à ce sport. Ce programme s’adresse aux jeunes autistes ainsi qu’à leurs frères et sœurs de 8 à 18 ans. Une partie du temps sera consacré au conditionnement physique et à l’apprentissage d’habiletés sociales. Les participants pourront entre autres se familiariser avec les règles de sécurité sur les courts et à l’extérieur des courts, avec la coordination main-œil ainsi qu’avec les notions d’esprit sportif et du jeu à tour de rôle.

 

NOTE: Supervision of children/youth at this Social Learning Opportunity is the sole responsibility of parents/guardians and caregivers; childcare will not be provided.

General FAQ


1.) Do I need to print out ticket or email confirmations to attend this event?

For most of our events there is no need to print anything, unless the event specifies otherwise.  When you arrive at the event, you will have to check in at the registration desk.  You will be asked for your name and how many people are attending with you.  That's all.


2.) Do I need to bring proof of diagnosis?

No, not needed.  Again, just check in at the registration desk and enjoy the event.


3.) Is there a cost to attend this event?

Almost all of our events are free of charge because the cost is covered by Autism Ontario's Potential Programme, in partnership with Ontario’s Ministry of Children & Youth Services and the local Autism Ontario Chapter.  If there is a cost, you will see it on the registration page when you select how many ticket you want.


4.) Do I need to be a member of Autism Ontario to register and participate?

No.  While membership does provide other great opportunities, events provided through Autism Ontario’s Potential Programme are open to all families of children with ASD, under the age of 18, who reside in Ontario.
