Volunteer Workshop- Adaptive Climbing

Body

Calling Adaptive Climbing Volunteers! 

Join us on October 29 at Lakeshore Sports and Fitness for a workshop to build your adaptive climbing volunteer skills in: 

  • the practice and principle of safe transfers, how to be mindful of body mechanics, and the how to set up the environment; and 
  • understanding the muscle activation during different climbing positions and how that differs for people with various neurologic conditions.

Sofia Anastasopolous, physical therapist at the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, will be presenting. 

Refreshments will be provided. 

Parking validation available. 

REGISTRATION IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED. Contact Aimee Gottlieb at 312-238-5010 or agottlieb@sralab.org to sign up. 

The adaptive climbing program is a joint program between the Shirley Ryan AbilityLab Adaptive Sports Program, Adaptive Adventures, and Synergy Adaptive Athletics
