- Hamilton: Exercise & Excellence Series
February 24, 2017
5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Get ready to bounce around with ICD at our Exercise & Excellence Series and Parent Workshop in Hamilton!
ICD is a leader in exercise and diabetes with experts in the science who talk the talk and athletes who walk the walk. We’ve hosted thousands of type 1’s in everything from a fun day of sport to week long camps and extreme challenges. We focus on how to manage diabetes effectively in the midst of real life challenges and use active programs to bring strategies to life. If you’re looking to share a fun day of sports with peers, build on diabetes skills or see why ICD has a 100% participant response rate for motivation to live better with diabetes, come pay us a visit.
What: Our leaders include passionate and world class athletes who can provide participants with knowledge of life with T1D that can help them reach their goals. Participants will get active as a group and dive into a variety of exercise while managing diabetes together.
A unique part of our program is in the ‘workshop’ that goes beyond the typical activity based coaching and uses the team’s skills to address the challenges and struggles that come up with diabetes. There will be opportunities to discuss and build a better understanding of how our bodies work and how to make a plan that is flexible and ready to be as active as you are.
Activities include: Trampolining, trampolining dodgeball and other trampolining activities!
Active participants – our workshop will be conducted throughout the day to learn directly as we workout. ( known as “Experiential Learning”)
Parent workshop – Parents are invited to join the parent workshop, we will have a facilitated discussion on exercise, food and diabetes. The workshop will take place at Kelsey’s restaurant (located in the same plaza)
Who: Type 1s of all ages are welcome and may register friends or family members. All skill and levels in both sport and diabetes management. Our leaders will teach you from the beginning or challenge you to be your best.
