Friendship Circle Fitness Program for Special Needs

FacebookTwitterPinterest

The Friendship Circle is a non-profit organization that brings together children, teens and young adults with and without special needs for a wide range of educational and social programs in a Jewish environment. One of the many programs run by the Friendship Circle is FC Fitness, an engaging and athletic program that helps keep participants active and social during the long winter months.

This year’s FC Fitness was especially exciting with all the new equipment donated from S&S Worldwide:

FC Fitness is structured as four rotating stations, and all participants are placed in a team and given a corresponding color pinnie. Each team then made their way through all the exciting centers, practicing and developing different skills at each one.

Station 1: At the first center, they practiced passing balls to each other. Participants learned the overhead pass, the chest pass and how to bounce pass, using a flat hoop as a guide of where to bounce the ball.

trade showThe first week of December the Merchandising Department holds their annual New Product Trade Show for all S&S Worldwide employees to attend. This is a great opportunity for our employees to touch, feel and play with all our new products that we will be selling in the coming year.

The goal of the show was to demonstrate how we are looking towards the future which was represented by our space theme, Blast Off 2017 and Beyond. We tied this together with our space themed décor and the merchandising team’s attire, which were Galaxy shirts. (Check out our blog How to Make DIY Galaxy Shirts!)

We asked every employee, as they walked around, to decide what they thought was the best new product for 2017. Many found this to be a difficult feat as there were over 35 tables Continue reading
