Rep­re­sen­ta­tives with Recre­ation New­found­land and Labrador want to talk shop in Up­per Is­land Cove.

On Sept. 17 at the Recre­ation Cen­tre in the com­mu­nity Recre­ation NL will be hold­ing a work­shop de­signed for the Avalon re­gion.

Start­ing at 5:30 p.m. par­tic­i­pants will be dis­cussing recre­ational ac­tiv­i­ties that are hap­pen­ing in the re­gion. Recre­ation NL re­gional di­rec­tor, An­nette Old­ford, will be in at­ten­dance.

At the event, a “You Can Play Too In­clu­sion Work­shop” will be given. This ini­tia­tive is de­signed for in­di­vid­u­als seek­ing to gain a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of inclusive recre­ation prac­tices.

Di­rec­tors will learn and re­ceive the nec­es­sary tools and re­sources to help adapt ac­tiv­i­ties for par­tic­i­pants based on their needs, plus tips on guid­ing be­hav­iours in pro­grams and ac­tiv­i­ties.

The sport of boc­cia will also be in­tro­duced at the work­shop. It is a fully inclusive sport for all abil­i­ties and can be played ei­ther recre­ation­ally or com­pet­i­tively.
