2016 Fall Fitness Classes

Posted on: June 27th, 2016 by Calgary Youth Physiotherapy No Comments

Welcome to Calgary Youth Physiotherapy Fitness Classes! If you are returning to our classes, thank you for your continued participation over the past year!

In the upcoming year (2016-17) we are offering the following classes:

JUMP START (12 weeks)
Wednesdays 4 – 4:45pm
These classes have been implemented to service children 7-11 years of age with gross motor coordination challenges and/or those who have a tendency to toe walk. Classes are focused on improving balance, addressing coordination challenges, and improving basic gross motor skills.

FIT WITH FRIENDS (12 weeks)
Wednesdays 4:45 – 5:30PM
These classes have been implemented to improve the physical well-being of those clients that require extra assistance and that are not best serviced in another class. There will be 4 – 5 spots available in this class, and determination of appropriate suitability for the class will be discussed prior to registration. Goals of the class include maintaining mobility, building strength, and increasing overall fitness in a fun and social environment, with support.

STRONG TOGETHER (12 weeks)
Wednesdays 5:30pm – 6:15PM
These classes have been implemented to service those clients that are able to participate with a higher level of independence. There will be 8-9 spots available in this class, and determination of appropriate suitability for the class will be discussed prior to registration. Goals of the class include targeting specific individuals’ needs with stretching and strengthening programs, as well as group based sport specific activities.

*In all cases, a client that is new to Calgary Youth Physiotherapy and or new to the classes will require an assessment prior to registration.

*An important aspect of the classes is that the participants learn about their own body’s needs and start building life knowledge on how to independently achieve good fitness, mobility, function and sport specific goals.

AHS Funded Clients Cancellation Fee/Non Attendance
In order to run these classes, the clinic is not open to other clientele and is specifically for the use of the class registrants. In addition, two full time physiotherapy staff members and an assistant are scheduled during these hours exclusively for the classes. Alberta Health Services only contributes fund for the running of these classes when the client attends. Therefore, in all circumstances, a fee of $30 will be charged for cancelation or non-attendance even in the EVENT OF ILLNESS.

AHS funding is available for pediatric clients, up to the age 18, who are able to participate in a class setting and who would benefit from the physical and social effects of the class. As per our new contract in April 2014, AHS will only fund one set of classes per calendar year.
