Compete in Sports at Any Age (even with an injury)

Compete in Sports at Any Age (even with an injury)

It really is hard to stay busy when your body is not working 100%. Many adults were competitive sports enthusiasts; but now have some injuries or disabilities that make it hard to find a way to fulfill that competitive drive. Can you relate to finding alternate activities to replace competitive sports? Lately there has been some fun poked at Boomers’ lack of skill with technology. The truth is, baby boomers are some of the smartest and best educated people… not to mention their broad life skills. With a long history in college and adult sports leagues, VR sports is the next challenge to conquer.

Quality Family or Group Time

It’s easy to participate in VR. At Arcadia the staff will take you through an orientation of the equipment and the games. Learn new skills and impress your kids and grandkids. In fact, a VR lounge is a place where grandparents and their grandkids can spend time together and have plenty to talk about. Wow friends and family with an outing to Arcadia. Every one in your group or club can try a new sport; and / or travel to the country your ancestors immigrated from. Explore your roots. In Kelowna there are a limited number of family activities where everyone has a great time. More specifically, it is nice to go somewhere and find activities-that-are-inclusive. When a group goes to Arcadia Virtual Lounge everyone gets to watch the same screen the person in the booth is watching. Observing other people doing VR is entertaining in itself.

Older Adults Stay Hip with Hobbies

Take the opportunity to try something new. After years of hard work and saving, retirement offers the freedom of choice. Retirement allows a well-deserved break from the hard work and climbing the corporate ladder. Most retirees are very involved in extended family and look for ways to spend time with grandkids. Once you’ve introduced the children to your favourite hobbies and places; let them show you their gaming skills at Arcadia in Kelowna. We know young children thrive on your attention. Watching them in the VR booth ensures you all have a good time. Don’t keep repeating the same routine. Mix it up and keep things interesting. Boomers: you have about 25 years to fill with worthwhile pursuits. Consider challenging yourself to get more comfortable with gaming and VR. This is a good way to stay relevant to your kids and granddads.
