Sense Rugby at Hanging Rock Saturday Aug 29th

The awesome Sense Rugby team have been asked to play at the Batemans Bay Boars Indigenous Gala Day tomorrow at Hanging Rock Oval. Sense Rugby is a rugby based Occupational Therapy program designed to help kids who usually find it difficult to be part of a sports team. Sense Rugby is specifically designed by occupational therapists to assist children with a developmental delay and those living with a variety of conditions (e.g. Autism Spectrum Disorder). Sense Rugby utilizes modified rugby drills to assist children develop skills to process sensory information, focus on an activity for 30+ minutes, work on their motor coordination, manage their emotions, apply social skills techniques and learn to work alongside their peers.

Jess Hannan of Coast and Country Occupational Therapy told The Beagle "We are so excited as our kids have worked so hard to be part of this day and it is the first time for all of them, that they have been able, to participate in a sporting day. "One of our parents broke down in tears when we told them as they have only ever dreamt of their children being part of a sporting team. "Olympian Gold Medalist,Jesse Parahi and his wife Carlien Parahi, who founded the Sense Rugby program will be coming tomorrow to support us so it will be a fabulous day. "It is wonderful and awesome that the Batemans Bay Boars Rugby Club have been in including us into their Club and allowing children with disabilities access to the same opportunities everyday kids do."
