DRSSA has long been known for delivering a wide range of quality, sports-based programs. In 2014, we are launching a series of recreational activities designed for those who want to get out & about but not ‘compete’. Many have an arts-base including song-writing, music business, circus, theatre and drama and radio but for those more inclined to leisure, we also have fishing & canoeing.
Lolly Jar Circus is an independent, not-for-profit organisation that has developed a circus skills program for young people with a disability.
DRSSA recommends their excellent program delivered by qualified instructors.
Classes are held weekly at All Souls Church Hall, St Peters.
If you would like to get involved, please contact Lolly Jar Circus direct – www.lollyjarcircus.com.au - for costs and times.
Controlled Scuba Experience - Give it a Go
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater, experience total weightlessness and escape the world above, then the Controlled Scuba Experience Give It A Go program is made just for you.
Determined2 have developed a fun, safe way to experience scuba within the clear warm waters of your local swimming centre.
This no strings attached session will introduce you to a whole different world and will leave you amazed at just how easy it is to breathe underwater.
Their fully qualified team of instructors will introduce you to the equipment, and will then have you blowing bubbles and swimming around in no time. Their equipment is of the highest of quality, and is fully serviced and maintained for your safety.
The Give It A Go program operates within the Adelaide Aquatic Centre which offers great facilities.
This program is fully inclusive and is open to people with or without a disability and does not require any previous scuba experience. It allows all people of all abilities to experience the freedom and weightlessness of being underwater in an equal fashion. It is also a great way to escape all your thoughts and stresses for an hour.
Best of all part of the proceeds from your session go towards supporting the Immersion Therapy program – which is our specialty program designed for people with disabilities; so it really is a win win. These funds are vital to keep supporting the important Immersion Therapy program for people with disabilities. Unfortunately some members of the disability community do not have access to mainstream funding and Determined2 believe that everyone should be able to have access to their programs. The proceeds from the Give It A Go program go directly to filling the gap between funded and non-funded members of the community.
All sessions will be tailored just for you - after all, it’s your experience and we love creating them.
