Northwest Association for Blind Athletes to host Goalball Clinic in Moscow, Idaho
Vancouver, Washington—November, 10 2015—The Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) announced today that it will be hosting a Goalball Clinic for adults with visual impairments in Moscow, Idaho. The event is scheduled for Friday, November 13th from 9:00am-12:30pm at Hamilton Recreation Center (1724 East F Street, Moscow, ID). It is open to adults of all ages with visual impairments across the state of Idaho.
“We are very excited to announce our Goalball Enrichment Day for students who are blind and visually impaired. This event will introduce students to the sport, and give them the opportunity to learn more about the Paralympic games” said Executive Director Billy Henry.
Goalball is a Paralympic sport played by individuals who are blind and visually impaired. Developed after WWII as a way to keep blinded veterans physically active, it has become the premiere team game for blind athletes. Played competitively by men and women, it is a very fast paced, physically challenging, strategic and exciting game.
Northwest Association for Blind Athletes (NWABA) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that provides programming to over 1,000 individuals of all ages and ability levels with visual impairments. The mission of NWABA is to provide life-changing opportunities through sports and physical activity to individuals who are blind and visually impaired. The Association was formed by a group of visually impaired students in 2007 to ensure that people who are blind were participating in sports and physical activity.
