More then just a game

I grew up doing a lot of physical activity which included: Boccia, Track and Field, Horseback riding, synchronized swimming and wheelchair basketball.

The local wheelchair basketball team accepted people from age 8 and up. When I was five they had an activity day to showcase the sport to younger kids I loved it. I loved it so much that I pestered that I could return again so much so that they changed the entrance age, and made these activity days a regular thing. Now they not only play basketball on these activity days but they go bowling etc. the basketball team does exist but I was never involved with the team. This post was inspired by this. By the way my physical activity has fallen a bit by the wayside.

About lifeofthedifferentlyabled

Laura Forde founded her blog through my eyes: my life with cerebral palsy in December 2009 out of a great need she had, realizing that there was a vast gap in firsthand accounts of what life was like living with Cerebral Palsy: she knew then that the only way to see this reflected online was to create the change herself and thus this blog was born Laura was born four months premature, weighing a mere one pound three ounces and given ten percent odds for survival. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at the age of three. After graduating from college, she continued writing and doing what she loves to do most; speaking to groups about her life experiences and sharing what she has learned from her journey. Her blog lifeofthedifferentlyabled was created after discovering that the online community lacked the voice of people in her situation. In its first year, the site saw over 20,000 hits from all over the world. Her readers are from all walks of life; some with disabilities, parents of children, professionals, and others who seek to gain a better understanding of the world of the differently abled.

    Come and Try Days are great.

    AZ Chapman also plays basketball, her site is over here.

    Life and times of a teenager with disabilities

    And one of my friends, Jayne, plays wheelchair basketball as well.

    I love specialist sports schools like Brehm.

    Now we know that student athletes are “not just lazy”. It’s great to see the diversity here.

    Would love to know more about the swimming: sychronised.

    And this is one instance where pester power worked.
