Programs for Seniors:
Living Longer Living Stronger (Tier 3)
Living Longer Living Stronger
(LLLS) (Tier 3) is an outreach health and wellness program designed for the residents of retirement villages to become active and establish physical activity as regular behavior. In particular the LLLS Tier 3 initiative focuses on providing resistance training opportunities for older adults complemented by a variety of advice on health and wellness. Exercise, particularly resistance training, has been shown to be the most effective way to actively avoid losing muscle with age. Numerous studies show convincingly that resistance exercise training can increase muscle strength and power and improve the ability to perform the tasks of daily living.
In association with the Council of the Aging WA (COTA WA), LLLS Tier 3 is currently delivered at the City of Bayswater`s Mertone and Lawley Park Retirement Villages with participants demonstrating huge gains in their health & wellbeing.
We also offer Living Longer Living Stronger at Tiers 1 and 2.
Programs for People with Disabilities:
Discounted Casual Access to the Health Club
Huge benefits can be achieved through exercise for people with disabilities. To encourage such, Morley Sport & Recreation Centre provide people with disabilities and their carers a heavily discounted casual fee of $3.40 to attend the Health Club. This allows access to cardio- vascular equipment (treadmills, bikes etc), weight machines and freeweights. Please note: this fee simply covers access to the Health Club, if you require assistance with an exercise program or an equipment induction, an additional fee is applicable.
Inclusion 4 Life (Children with Disabilites)
Inclusion 4 Life is a new program that aims to raise community awareness of children with disabilities by promoting inclusive activities for both disabled and main stream children. The program focuses on teaching children skills in a variety of sports whilst making friends and having fun.
The program is designed as a low cost multisport/activity program open to all
children but has a strong focus on including children with a disability into mainstream community life. Differing local clubs assist in the delivery of the program, so each week participants have the opportunity to experience a new activity such as netball, karate and basketball.
Sessions are supervised by a qualified Disability Instructor and an assistant (in addition to the activity coaches) to guarantee the suitability of activities for children with disabilities.
This program is held on Tuesdays (3.45-4.45pm) during the school term for children aged 9-16yrs.
To enrol or for further information call the Centre on 9375 3529.

Morley Sport and Recreation Centre working with the Centre for Cerebral Palsy
Morley Sport and Recreation Centre is pleased to be involved in another great community project.
Morley Sport and Recreation Centre is working with the Centre for Cerebral Palsy to offer exercise variety to people with cerebral palsy. Our experienced Personal Trainers are using their expertise to write appropriate and effective exercise programs for clients with cerebral palsy.
There is also an element of 'Train the Trainer' in the sessions, so that some exercises can continue to be practised off site and ensure maximum benefit to the client. The project aims to increase client mobility and provide meaningful, social interaction for clients.
The program is available to select individuals who are members of the Centre for Cerebral Palsy therapy programs.
