Adapted Sports Activities
Sporting activities play an important role in all our lives and this is especially true for the life and communities of persons with disabilities.
Physical activity and participating in sports promote improved functioning and quality of life.
A great many sporting activities that can be used for rehabilitation and recreation have now become accessible to people with disabilities. Adapted sports are used increasingly in treatment, complementing conventional methods of physiotherapy.
Participation in adapted sports and games gives individuals the opportunity:
- to improve their physical condition
- to increase their motor activity and dexterity
- to develop new interests for making use of their free time
- to experience positive social and group experiences, that result in developing their personality, self-confidence and self-respect.
The program of the Therapeutic Physical Education department includes, depending on the period, the following Adapted Sports Activities.
