Adaptive curling for youth and adults with physical disabilities
The curling season is in full swing for the folks at Courage Kenny as they help make activities more accessible for differently abled people.
On Saturday the 14th of January, we caught up with kids who got to spend time learning about the popular Northland sport at the Duluth curling club. Organized by Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute here in Duluth, the organization provides recreational opportunities for youth and adults with physical disabilities and this event kick starts their curling clinics for the year.
Curling is a great sport because you can play it as a team or go head to head. With the accessibility of the curling club Courage Kenny was able to show participants the joy of the winter sport as their monthly curling clinics are now under way in partnership with the Duluth curling club.
Program Manager, Mark Hanna says “Curling is not only an Olympic sport but it’s a Paralympic sport and something for people of all abilities can do.”
If you will like to get involved in adaptive curling or even join a league you can head on to their website for more information.
