Sense Rugby Union Come and Try
Have your Wide Bay Kids ever wanted to try rugby in a safe and comfortable environment?
This event is a great opportunity to bring them along to give it a try. Last week we sat down with Kaha Kids Occupational Therapist, Ingrid Fourie, to find out about the launch of Sense Rugby in Bundaberg.
On Sunday May 28 at Brothers Sports Grounds the community is invited to meet Jesse Parahi the co-founder of Sense Rugby and Australian Rugby Sevens Olympian! The Bundaberg Sense Rugby 2-hour come and try session is open to everyone of all ages and abilities.
Ingrid said "The Sense Rugby come and try day gives families the opportunity to come and see and learn more about the 8-week program starting soon in the region. The program uses modified rugby union drills (also transferable to rugby league) to help kids and teens to process sensory information, manage their emotions, follow instructions, build confidence and social skills. The program is also designed for children who are neurodiverse and children who find it challenging to be a part of a team or who may have difficulty following instructions, need sensory input or have difficulty managing their emotions. The program is suitable for children under 18 years. It is considered therapy as it is facilitated by an occupational Therapist at all times. Families with NDIS funding can use their capacity building funds to pay for the full 8-week program."
