HUGS was developed by the United States Gymnastics Federation.  This is an adaptive gymnastics program designed especially for special needs individuals of all ages.

The FREE program will be offered at Spirit Gymnastics, 21 Spirit Lake Road, Winter Haven and is a 1 ½ hours of training fun designed for Special Needs.  Parents are welcome to stay and participate or observe the program.  Instruction is provided by certified Spirit Gymnastics coaches and volunteers trained to work with special needs children.  Lakeland Regional Rehabilitation staff is partnering with us, providing occupational therapist that will volunteer in the program.  The lead therapist will be providing adaptive gymnastics therapy recommendations and is very excited a program is available for the special needs children in our area.

This program is designed to help special needs children to improve physical abilities, balance, coordination, strength, endurance, flexibility, environment to practice and learn social skills, and a place to build confidence with adaptive gymnastics, rhythmic gymnastics, parachute activities, bounce house and a wide array of games and activities for fun.
