Announcement: Hopscotch Japanese-Style in Greenbelt

Improve balance, agility, coordination and mental acuity in a classic game with a new twist—developed by Japanese researchers.


Karen Haseley, therapeutic recreation supervisor with the Greenbelt Recreation Department, announces:

Remember playing Hopscotch as a kid? Well Japanese researchers have developed a new form of the classic game, called square-stepping. The goal is to step in and out of the squares in prescribed patterns of varying complexity. This activity has shown to be fun, as well as improve balance, agility, coordination and mental acuity.

Come on out and give it a try On Friday, Oct. 26, at the Explorations Unlimited program with Karen Haseley, Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist.

Haseley has been working for the City of Greenbelt Recreation Department for almost 25 years and loves introducing individuals to new activities.

Explorations Unlimited is held every Friday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Greenbelt Community Center. This presentation will be held in the Senior Classroom, room 114. Everyone is welcome to attend and questions are always encouraged. Please call 301-397-2208 for more information.
